dc.description.abstractThroughout the centuries, descendants of formerly colonised peoples continue to face the after-effects of colonialism. In New Zealand, the indigenous Māori people face the highest rate of incarceration. The New Zealand prison system is one of the more punitive ones in the world, with a retributive justice-focused approach. This project aims to work through a more restorative lens, with reference to a body of writers and thinkers that lend thought to this position. This project also evaluates ways in which to heal the gap between marginalised communities and mainstream society. In the Oceanic worldview, water is the entity that does not separate but binds and connects families to their loved ones. Water is not perceived as an obstacle but the surface that brings humans together. With this perspective, an archipelago is imagined for the community’s healing to commence between members of society and various entities. PROJECT BRIEF The project is an intervention for a fragmented community and seeks to create a restorative approach to strengthen social bonds within a community. It re-envisions the archipelago metaphor and breaks through the boundaries of an atomised and segregated society. It seeks to bridge the divide between mainstream and the marginal. *The scheme is part of the Twin Stream Project as connection to the water is a key element.*en_NZ
