Rutherford House & Lecture Theatres

Lambton Quay
Wellington, Wellington
A very 60s Ministry of Works tower which once housed the State Electricity Department has had its image changed by the addition of an attractive lecture block for the Victoria University of Wellington designed by Craig Craig and Moller.
Seismic, a sculptural work by Louise Purvis, sits in front of the lecture block.
Just inside the lecture theatre block is a large Colin McCahon painting (Gate lll) from the university's collection.
The tone of the painting is set by Old Testament texts from Isaiah, Jeremiah and Psalms chosen by poet John Caselberg.
Sharing the ground floor space with the McCahon painting is a spacious coffee bar and bookshop.
