Filmmaker and kinetic sculptor, Len Lye died in 1980, much of his life’s work went to the Govett-Brester Art Gallery in New Plymouth which is situated adjacent to the Len Lye Centre. The Building was designed by Andrew Patterson and has won numerous awards for its design and engineering of its curved exterior wall of mirrorlike stainless steel.
