Marie and Paul
Waipa is made up of various streams and currents that provided food, transport and kept communities connected.
The designs below represent water and the movement of stream, peat lakes, lakes, rivers. Embedded in the name Te Awamutu (the end of Manga o hoi stream) water is a fundamental source of life. The designs connect to modern living across the Waipa landscape with Karapiro and Waikato River which then leads out to the sea , and to the world.
These designs can be refined with engineers and architects.
