Modern and traditional - four buildings of the University of Auckland in one collage to enhance the different architecture.

The University of Auckland (Māori: Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau) is the largest university in New Zealand, located in the country's largest city, Auckland. It is the highest-ranked university in the country, being ranked 81st worldwide in the 2016/17 QS World University Rankings. Established in 1883 as a constituent college of the University of New Zealand, the university is made up of eight faculties; these are spread over six campuses. It has more than 40,000 students, and more than 30,000 "equivalent full-time" students.

On the left up - the traditional Maori meeting house
- marae. Under it - the clock tower building (Old Arts Building) on the City campus. The building is protected as a 'Category I' historic place, and was finished in 1926. It is considered an Auckland landmark and icon of the university.
at the bottom left - Science Centre.
I do not know what is the building on the right side. I found the facade very attractive and original.

Bonjour, chère Malgo,
Très bon montage montrant les diverses architectures et les différentes affectations.
Je constate que certaines architectures contemporaines sont originales, d'autres beaucoup moins (enfin, ce n'est qu'un simple avis).

Hello Malgo,
Excellent way to present the university and its very diverse architecture. Perfectly realised with very good colours and sharpness.

I also have a trip planned for the autumn - long haul. In the meantime I am going to Faro in Portugal for a week at the beginning of next month.

Hello Malgo,

A fine series of photographs, of which my favourite is definitely the patterned facade. Such photographs excite the imagination as, with careful scrutiny, you can make up lots of little patterns within the whole.
I cannot imagine how many photographs you took on this expedition, no wonder you want to post as many as possible so that we can share the diverse features of this remarkable country!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Bonjour, chère Malgo,

A superb collage of images from around Auckland. Good contrasts between old and new architecture with excellent sharpness. I like the carved wooden Maori structure at the top. Each image compliments the others. Tfs!

Hello Malgo,
There is certainly a great variety of buildings at this university. The Science centre is the most attractive to my eyes. A collage like this is a good solution when you can't make up your mind what to present as a main upload. This is a nicely assembled collection of interesting buildings.
Kind regards,

Ciao Malgo,

La ville semble bien se relever du dernier tremblement de terre. J'aime beaucoup ce diptyque qui nous offre une belle variété de neuf et de vieux. Les contrastes entre les deux sont très forts.

Hello Malgo,
You put these four completely different buildings, all part of the university, so well together. I think I like the one in the bottom left hand corner most, although the traditional architecture is also very interesting. Well done.

Hi Malgorzata
Un assemblage contradictoire entre l'architecture ancienne et moderne, superbe les reflets
Bonne soirée

Ciao Malgo
un bel collage di architetture per una unica università.
La sua posizione in classifica è comunque prestigiosa, soprattutto in relazione alla sua età piuttosto "giovane".
Buon we

Hello Malgo
A beautiful collage of the versatility of the architecture of the University of Auckland.
Very nice how you have united four different styles in this presentation.
Excellent work.
Have a good weekend, groet Rob
