Cameron Civil contracted ICB to build these timber crib walls in Westgate. The designers Isthmus won the award at the World Architecture Festival. Judges described the project as a successful translation of regional Maori traditions. "Inspired by woven baskets for catching eel, Isthmus has developed an innovative river-wall system of interlocking timbers," they said. "Simple yet sophisticated engineering allows the baskets to retain silt and create habitats which will shift and change over time.“
