dc.description.abstractThe significance of the proposal stems from changes being made in contemporary society. Ideals of densification and the attempt to provide working and living facilities within walking distance of each other minimize the required use of the car. This coupled with increasing oil prices currently being experienced after reaching peak oil in 2006, brings into question the feasibility of the personal car of the future. Living in neighborhoods which are connected by reliable, predictable and sustainable public transportation is the desired and potentially required solution for the future. With this in mind, the redundant Nelson Street off ramp could foreshadow the future of our car biased infrastructures. What is to become of the large structures that dominate our modern cities? Are they to be left to become a ruin, a glorified modern day aqueduct or a brutal reminder of past decisions? Is there more potential for future use of these infrastrucural monoliths? This project seeks to explore one potential option for the adaptations that can be made for the benefit of a car-biased city.en_NZ
