dc.description.abstractThe topic of Urban Resolutions is a research piece on Auckland’s urban plan, with the inclusion of heritage builds for reuse or repurpose. An international comparative analysis with Vancouver’s EcoDensity initiative was conducted, to establish whether that model or a similar one, might work for Auckland city; bearing in mind Auckland’s unique landscape and culture. The key Research Question was - ‘How does Auckland Supercity intend to integrate a feasible and well-structured urban plan, that includes its heritage buildings?’ This question was derived from a sense that there is a general lack of knowledge, regarding the continuous development of Auckland. In addition, there are the complications which occur in communities, when large cities such as Auckland become disconnected. By including the historic buildings in the research, this highlights the opportunities of restoration, to create new uses for heritage to suit today’s lifestyles within society. This research was conducted by undertaking qualitative semi-structured interviews with design and urban planning professionals within the construction industry, that were based in Auckland and Vancouver. This enabled access to experience and knowledge within their individual fields and their unique case studies in which they have been involved. Auckland is large and growing rapidly, and this research gives an overview into the city’s current status and attempts to highlight the obstacles that Auckland faces. Overall, undertaking this research, into ‘urban resolutions’, has provided an opportunity to open up discussion and review – of what makes a city liveable, and how communities can be created by developing usable integrated spaces, which in turn help form relationships.en_NZ
