Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage is running an open architectural design competition to find a winning design for a Pacific Island Memorial to be installed at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park in Wellington.
Pukeahu National War Memorial Park is the national place for New Zealanders to remember and reflect on this country’s experience of war, military conflict and peacekeeping and how this experience shapes our ideals and sense of national identity.
The memorials in Pukeahu National War Memorial Park stand as symbols of our shared experiences, as well as our enduring friendships and commitment to peace and international cooperation. This new memorial will recognise our closest friends, the Pacific nations.
The Pacific Island Memorial will represent New Zealand’s friendship with all Pacific Island countries and in particular will recognise the service of Pacific Islanders in the New Zealand Defence Forces.
