Tīramarama Way, the laneway that runs between Halsey and Daldy Streets, means to shine, glimmer and light the way. So, it’s fitting that the light installation hanging above it above maps out stars and constellations that are important to Māori astronomy, including Te Punga – Southern Cross, and Matariki.

Prior to the reclamation of Wynyard Quarter, this location was the former intertidal shoreline of the Waitematā Harbour and was a mahinga kai (a food gathering place). This is represented in the design of the laneway with the inclusion of purposeful puddles that rise and fall with the tides, 500,000 sand blasted dots into the surface of the laneway to represent the texture of the shore and the constellation of lights above.
