Lawyers say "Go Jump!"

In 2013 Wellington Waterfront commisioned Wraight + Associates to activate some urban skyscape down at Taranaki Wharf - the result, a  bespoke Jump Platform - an un-gated seemingly non-compliant twisting, turning staircase that enables leaps from platforms of 5 to 8m to all who dare. As Jon Rennie in an article published in ArchitectureNow suggests "The council’s lawyers should be awarded for the urbanism that their legal opinion enabled; Wraight + Associates should be rewarded for the conveyancing of the design into built form; and Wellington Waterfront should be commended for having the cojones to do it."

Go New Zealand!
