dc.description.abstractThis project has been done in conjunction with the Auckland Council’s proposal on Auckland’s Future Plans of increasing its population and to make Auckland “the world’s most liveable city”. The goal of a liveable city is to express our shared desire to create a city where people can enjoy a high quality of life and at the same time to improve standards of living. Currently Auckland employ a linear urban metabolism flow of resources, energy and wastes. From the research carried out during this research, this flow of resources, energy and waste isn’t a type of system that would be able to sustain itself over the time. This made me wonder about how a typical Auckland suburb could be redesigned and intensified using the circular urban metabolism principles to enhance liveability, sustainability, resilience and affordability. This project focuses on using Ken Yeang’s theory on Eco-Cells and redesigning it so that the principles suits Auckland’s culture and also the climate. These principles would be employed in Mount Roskill to test where the eco-cell principles help to intensify the community and help Auckland to become “the world’s most liveable city.” This test would be carried out in two scales; the rst being the master-plan which shows how the principles of eco-cells works in the community level and the other scale to design a building which would show how the principle works in a building level. For the eco-cell, the following goals would be achieved. They are to: - Create an integrated and vibrant community; - Create a walkable neighbourhood with diversity of jobs, recreational activities and also residential types; - Lead the neighbourhood towards carbon neutrality; and - Improve quality of life and create desirable lifestyle.en_NZ
