  • Hodgson, Ryan (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2013)
    In this project I will investigate how a change in infrastructure can facilitate community appropriation. The type of community appropriation I am referring to is when the landscape allows people to take ownership, perhaps ...
  • Leather, Joanne Margaret (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2013)
    Traditional approaches to subdivision demonstrate a tendency towards an erasure of nature in favor of human habitation and therefore a trend to separatism. New Zealand's landscape reflects the historical clearing of bush ...
  • Cliffin, Penny (CITYPLANTastic, 8th International Conference, World in Denmark, 2012)
    Greening of cities has become a significant motivation for landscape architects, urban designers, and architects, as well as a growing public expectation. While there is need for the development of new technologies to ...
  • Cliffin, Penny (3rd annual International Conference on Education and New Learning Technologies, 2011)
    Landscape architects have a prominent role in designing and specifying plantscapes across a wide range of project scales, from gardens to urban streetscapes and parks to large-scale conservation revegetation. Both ...
  • Wake, Sue; Cha, Lucia (46th Annual Conference of the Architectural Science Association (ANZAScA), 2012)
    This paper is centred on knowledge building within research and design as a layered and collaborative approach. It develops a small case study of the learning journey of an undergraduate landscape architecture student ...
  • Bradbury, Matthew (International Planning History Conference - "Cities of Tomorrow", 2002)
    The announcement that Beijing is to become a Garden City by the opening of the 2008 Olympics shows how powerful and pervasive the idea of the garden city has been in urban development in the 20th and 21st centuries. ...
  • Adam, John P.; Bradbury, Matthew (New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects Biennial Conference, 2002)
    Fred Tschopp represents the moment that contemporary landscape architecture came to New Zealand. Government and Local Authorities In Wellington, Rotorua and Auckland employed him to create new forms of public utilities - ...
  • Coombes, Daniel Reginald (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2011)
    Landscape architects are attempting to become complicit or knowingly involved with the nonhuman and human processes which determine the formation of landscape. Because these processes are understood as being indeterminate, ...
  • Popov, Nikolay (GA 2010 – XIII Generative Art Conference, 2010)
    Complexity theory offers a new way of understanding spatial patterns as self-organising morphologies. This provides a promising paradigm for exploring spatial organizations as the emergent outcome of dynamic relations ...
  • Margetts, Jacqueline; Barnett, Rod; Popov, Nikolay (Systematic Development: Local Solutions in a Global Environment, 13th Annual Australia and New Zealand Systems Conference, 2007)
    This paper reports on research which explores the modelling of landscape systems over time using multiagent simulation (MAS) software called NetLogo. Two case studies investigate a disturbance ecology approach to the ...
  • Popov, Nikolay (Cumulus 38ºSouth: Hemispheric shifts across learning, teaching and research, 2009)
    Cities and landscapes are now understood as systems that are open, chaotic, unpredictable, irreversible, and in constant flux - i.e. complex adaptive systems. This is why designers need to develop new modes of practice ...
  • Egginton, Zane; Popov, Nikolay; Orams, Brett (On the border: Architectural science in theory & practice, 44th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Architectural Science Association, 2010)
    The demands of Landscape Architects and Architects use of organic and complex forms at various scales heavily fuel this project. In a typical project a designer is often faced with three challenges, how to create a digital ...
  • Popov, Nikolay (On the border: Architectural science in theory & practice. 44th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Architectural Science Association, 2010)
    This paper reports on initial findings of a bigger research project that set out to explore the potential of generative algorithms in landscape architecture, urban design and architecture. The paper focuses on how urban ...
  • Davies, Renee; Simcock, Robyn; Ussher, Graham; Toft, Richard; Boult, Martin; deGroot, Cris (CitiesAlive: 8th Annual Green Roof and Wall Conference, 2010)
    Living roofs offer an opportunity to bring conservation into a contemporary context integrated within urban landscapes. Once neglected and under-utilized roof landscapes can now become biodiverse enclaves of indigenous ...
  • Milne, Elizabeth (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2011)
    This project investigates how the design of urban space might be influenced by the social phenomenon of homelessness. In central Auckland there are on average 150 homeless sleeping rough within a one kilometre radius of ...
  • Woodruffe, Paul (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2010)
    How can the practice of painting and drawing contribute to site analysis in Landscape Architecture? This project investigates possible uses and applications of fine art to Landscape Architectural site analysis practice. ...
  • Yu, Yushan (Joelle) (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2010)
    Eden Park Stadium is one of the major hosting stadia of 2011 Rugby World Cup. This research project explores how this and other events associated with Eden Park can integrate with the surrounding community and neighbourhood. ...
  • Zu, Zhiqiang (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2009)
    Given the increased complexity and uncertainty of the landscape milieux, mapping as a liberating, enabling, creative activity plays a pivotal role in the design process and affects how we understand and act upon the world. ...
  • Shepherd, Delwyn (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2009)
    This research project shows how communities and Territorial Authorities can understand and manage coastal erosion through low impact strategies that work with the dynamic conditions of beaches subject to constant natural ...
  • Griffiths, Christopher (Master of Landscape Architecture, 2005)
    The purpose of this research, then, is to identify, unravel, and utilise the often overlooked and unseen forces operating in landscapes. My investigation is intended to allow for the elaboration of rich and intricate ...
