Wind Tree

Artist: Michio Ihara, 1972

Location: Wynyard Quarter

Materials: stainless steel

Wind Tree, by artist Michio Ihara, is one of five artworks produced as a result of the Auckland International Sculpture Symposium held in September 1971.

It was first installed in Queen Elizabeth II Square in 1977 and was subsequently moved to its new home at Wynyard Quarter in 2011.

The trusses swing in the wind and the pool below reflects light up through the sculpture. It claims and transforms the space through water, movement and light.
