Auckland Waterfront

John Allan 3RD YEAR STUDY

Within an overall masterplan that connects Auckland to its waterfront, this design intervention offers various opportunities to interact with water. The area provides multiple functions - a ferry and water taxi terminal, bar and cafe areas, public lookouts., finger piers and an interactive water feature to rival princess Diana's memorial. The sunken courtyard surrounded by waterfalls produces a Paley Park like atmosphere, while a transparent sea wall allows the public to monitor the shifting tide.
