dc.description.abstractRESEARCH QUESTION: What are the architectural issues in the design of a refugee centre and how can they be addressed? In New Zealand there is no purpose built Refugee Resettlement Centre. Despite the complex requirements of a refugee centre, the current facility is a relatively unmodified former New Zealand army base in Mangere, South Auckland. I intend to investigate the architectural issues in the design of a refugee centre and how they can be addressed. The humanitarian dimension of the refugee problem and the complex pragmatic and programmatic nature of their reception and care requires a contemporary architectural solution; a centre where quota refugees are comfortable and safe during their initial stages of arrival in New Zealand, with suitable buildings for orientation programmes, individual autonomy and social gathering.en_NZ
