Artist's Description

Opened on 14 December 1911 by Baron Islington, then the Governor General of New Zealand, the building is one of the most prominent heritage structures on Queen Street. Costing £ 126,000 to construct, it was designed by Melbourne architects, JJ & EJ Clarke, their Italian Renaissance Revival building selected from amongst 46 proposals. The five-storey building was specially designed to fit the wedge-shaped piece of land that had been acquired for it at the meeting of Queen Street and Grey Street. The town hall formed Auckland’s first permanent seat of both administration and entertainment in the young city’s early history, with its Great Hall (seating 1,673) modelled on the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, and being considered as having one of the finest acoustics in the world.
