dc.description.abstractThis research project aims at researching the different architectural components and programmes of a traditional Iranian bazaar, and at exploring ways in which a new architectural space in Auckland city can awaken the four senses using contemporary versions of such components. An important part of this project is to create more than just retail spaces, but to create a series of transparent workshops, a colourful maze of corridors that lead to brightly lit outdoor courtyards and social areas, creating a stimulating journey for the visitor. Research was carried out into the forms and functions of Iranian bazaars and also Auckland markets and shopping centres through a series of annotated sketches/ diagrams, photographs and through communication with the local community. The chosen site was seen as a good brownfield candidate, an opportunity to develop the site to meet the community needs and enhance social living in the area. The bazaar program was established from the ethnicity and religious affiliation of the majority of people living and working within the surrounding area. The design process was highly influenced by the surrounding context, and has required a sensitive approach towards issues such as the form, height levels and programme locations within the site.en_NZ
