RESEARCH QUESTIONS: How did people in Onehunga get access to their waterfront? How might a new waterfront project integrate existing projects? The waterfront of each city is unique. The waterfront may become a tourist destination, reflect economic growth, or just be a refreshing place to spend alone. However, there are times when the development of the city itself blocks access to the sea, preventing its citizens from enjoying the waterfront This research tries to learn how to connect people to the waterfront when access is blocked by toll roads. It considers some elements of urban design theory and the objective conditions of the research site itself. What makes this research more interesting is its connection with current issues relating to Auckland as a city. Looking at the history of Onehunga, the present research tries to answer the challenge with balance and through generating alternative design choices that can both appreciate history and also remain modern.
