     The next 2 buildings are from a small town in New Zealand, called Tirau. These Dog and sheep shaped buildings were both constructed in the 1990s. The Dog Building is their local i-SITE Visitor Centre, while the Sheep Building has a simpler role - a wool and craft shop. An interesting way to get people to wander in and see whats happening!
