Pōwhiri Framework

Ngā Aho Māori Designers Network 

Ngā Aho is a network of Māori and Indigenous design professionals who come together to support each other to better service the design aspirations of our Māori and indigenous communities. Māori and indigenous design professionals are now represented in the fields of architecture, commercial design, engineering, landscape architecture, business, planning, project and resource management, and design-thinking / co-design.

Visit the Ngā Aho Network here for more information. 

Te Aranga Design Principles 

The Te Aranga Māori Design Principles  are a set of outcome-based principles founded on intrinsic Māori cultural values and designed to provide practical guidance for enhancing outcomes for the design environment. The principles have arisen from a widely held desire to enhance Mana Whenua  presence, visibility and participation in the design of the physical realm.
