dc.description.abstractThrough the investigation Carlo Scarpa’s architecture, four design techniques have been chosen; these techniques explain the reasoning behind Scarpa’s decision making. The four techniques will be the influence in discovering a new approach to reactivating an existing building. The site selected for this project is the Leys Institute, Ponsonby. The site, as well as the general Ponsonby area, has a long history and a strong community mentality. How the history of the site can be incorporated into the design will be investigated through the use of exploratory drawings and model making. Drawings and modelling will also be used to investigate how the four Carlo Scarpa techniques are applied to the building. The intention of this project is to generate a design that uses Scarpa’s design techniques to create community based spaces within the building that will draw the local people in. Scope and limitations: Although this project involves the use of an existing building, it is not a conservation project. Design decisions will be made with respect for conservation, but will not follow the ICOMOS NZ Charter guidelines.en_NZ
