Abstract
This research project, REVIVING THE HEART, researches and explores architectural solutions in connecting the people of Auckland back to their urban fabric of Auckland and eachother to restore their sense of place. Auckland is facing a pandemic of suburban sprawl. Generating a vast un-sustainable transport network, a poorly equipped public transport system and therefore a disconnection in the lives of the commuters and people of the city. The disconnection stems from the lack of place, a combination of social interaction, poor architecture, urban design and transport planning. This project seeks to focus on the major interchange of Auckland, utilising the necessary activities generated as a mechanism to create ‘place’ through architectural intervention. From this the goal is to enhance the public transport system and the commuters experience, through people choosing to be there as a result of the sense of place and community, whilst also re-activating an existing site.
