Museograph, working with Dunedin sculptors Louisa Bailey, Tony McManus and Seddons GRC Solutions, recently completed
restoration work on the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts building. As with many buildings of its period it had been modified for earthquake resistance and its ornate parapets shaved off in the 1980s. We worked with conservation architect Ian Bowman to reconstruct the missing elements and the results are stunning. We particularly enjoyed working on the central mask over the main door so look up next time you are in Nelson.
