Design students from Auckland’s Media Design School (MDS) have partnered with Ellen Melville Centre to create an ‘urban forest’ installation as part of a series of Conservation Week activations.

The ‘Kauri Lounge’, will be set up in the Helen Clark Room, and uses a combination of projections, sculptures and sound effects to simulate a New Zealand bush setting in and around the existing lounge seating.

Throughout Conservation Week the Ellen Melville Centre will also play host to a series of talks and school visits intended to raise awareness of kauri dieback disease, an issue that is especially pertinent in light of the recent closure of Auckland’s Waitakere Ranges.
