In April this year, the National War Memorial Park | Pukeahu was opened.  It was formally blessed on Wednesday 25th March, following which the site was host to numerous public events.  The park, formed above an undergrounded Buckle St (now Arras tunnel), was speedily built to meet the centenary of ANZAC Day.  So what kind of public space is it?  How importance is it as a national public space? Is this a design which will influence our future public spaces to come?
