dc.description.abstractIn this project I will investigate how a change in infrastructure can facilitate community appropriation. The type of community appropriation I am referring to is when the landscape allows people to take ownership, perhaps only temporarily, of a space for which they feel they can accommodate. The best way to illustrate community appropriation is through current examples, such as the Dominion Road upgrade project. In the industry there can be a difficulty in facilitating this kind of appropriation, particularly when large-scale planning approaches are given priority. I will explore how the understanding of urban context on Dominion Road can aid design that produces spaces which will be appropriated by the community ... Design research case study: Dominion Rd The street can also be an example of a community appropriation assemblage. How does it fit into people’s lives? Is it easy to cross, therefore convenient, or is it difficult and inconvenient. I want to highlight the importance of how the road itself can be considered an important passage between sidewalks and businesses on each side and whether the street has the ability to contribute towards community appropriation or detract from it. This example will compare and contrast two areas on Dominion Road: Mt. Roskill and Eden Terrace, Auckland.en_NZ
