The Hidden Playground

Rhys Pemberton 4TH YEAR Negotiated Study

There is often a misconception between graffiti and street art. Currently Auckland City has a zero tolerance on graffiti, while cities like Melbourne show how, in the right context, street art can work in a positive manner, creating a sense of place and spaces people want to interact with. By tapping into Britomart's cafe and bar scene, this research showed how street art can transform lane way spaces. 

The lane ways mix public and private areas, with the potential to link Auckland's developing shared space network and other urban realms together.
