Quentin Roake, architect, designer and waka builder discusses his journey helping translate traditional Māori and Pasifika waka into practical, affordable contemporary forms.

The project's core intention is to provide a practical means to bring our peoples together; one that recognises the importance of our founding cultures, that addresses our shared histories and opens pathways to a co-created future. Or "getting the next generation in the same boat," as Roake puts it.
