The building is simple in its conception, but complex in its
geometric form. Conceived and drawn before the use of architectural
CAD systems became common, it is a fantastic spatial achievement
, and the architect Sir Miles Warren has recently been named,
along with only 19 other artists, as a "New Zealand Icon".
CAD drawings presented here are extracted from
a 3D model of the MFC, created from on site laser measurements
during 2003, and with reference to the original construction
paper plans of the building. Thanks Mike Lamb of Lamb Design
for access to these and also to various 2D CAD drawings of parts
of the MFC and Town Hall.
