At your feet…




Wellington, New Zealand

On my recent visit to Wellington, local designers pointed out delightful detailing on cast-iron manhole covers (inspiring and designed—no reason for urban environments to be thoughtless and ugly)! I also took a shining to the intriguing Wellington Writer’s Walk along the harbor, a series of 15 concrete text sculptures designed by Catharine Griffiths (as are some of the manhole covers).
