Living in a Green World: How a combined ‘built + green’ typology can contribute towards an improved quality of life and environment in our city
The urban morphology of Auckland City is changing due to intensification. Meeting the demands of accommodating the population increase unfortunately puts pressure on open public and private green spaces to provide enough vegetation to enhance our urban fabric. With changing attitudes towards our environment, this thesis takes the opportunity to explore ‘how integrating a green-driven typology for high-rise buildings can contribute towards an improved quality of life and environment in our city’.
How can we create alternative, usable and enjoyable green spaces within a built-up context?
