Wildly inventive architecture & art
A thrilling tribute to the innovative, world-renowned work of New Zealand kinetic artist Len Lye (1901-1980), New Plymouth's Len Lye Centre is an integral part of the excellent Govett-Brewster Art Gallery. From the outside, the centre's stunning architecture of shimmering mirrored curtains reflects nearby heritage buildings, and the fascinating interior is a labyrinth of ramps and walkways showcasing Len Lye's interesting kinetic sculptures and innovative short films. Don't leave New Plymouth without also checking out his Wind Wand sculpture, a towering work on the city's often windswept oceanfront esplanade, that's pushed and pulled by bold maritime breezes coming from the Tasman Sea.
