Rewi Thompson designed the children's science and technology museum Capital Discovery Place (1988), located in Wellington's Civic Square, in conjunction with Athfield Architects. The pyramid shape visible at centre was part of the museum, which later changed its name to Capital E and moved to another site. Thompson was also responsible for the nearby City to Sea Bridge (1990), in collaboration with architect John Gray and artist Para Matchitt.
