Architect and guide for Hotel Britomart tours and Studio Red design talks

Dajiang set about making not only great streets, buildings, rooms, furniture, or lamps, but extraordinarily reimagined experiences of our city. He did so from the midnight hand-painting of poetry in calligraphic graffiti on the walls of basement noodle dens, to the construction of the ten-storey half-city-block Hotel Britomart. He is the architect of the country’s first five-star Greenstar hotel, and the recipient of the nation’s Emerging Design Professional of the year, the New Zealand Institute of Architects’ Sir Miles Warren Award for commercial architecture, and a dozen gold pins at the Designer’s Institute of New Zealand’s Best Awards
