50 Mayoral Drive
Opened in 1990 by Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, the Aotea Centre is a multi-purpose venue of world-class design featuring optimal flexibility across the centre, the latest technology, contemporary furnishings, and a large collection of New Zealand artwork.
Comprising the ASB Theatre and a range of foyers, bars and function rooms, the Aotea Centre is a world-class performing arts centre in the Auckland CBD.
The Maori name "Aotea" has several meanings in English, the most common one being "White Cloud" or "beyond the mist, a new beginning".
In 1988, as part of the building of the Aotea Centre, THE EDGE commissioned a significant body of work from prominent New Zealand artists. The pieces, which take pride of place throughout the Aotea Centre, comprise some of New Zealand's most highly regarded artworks.
