dc.description.abstractThis 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 the Sky Tower. Homeless are drawn to the urban realm to receive social service support and to become absorbed within the public life of the city. Observations into what spaces homeless occupy and how they occupy them reveals a set of features including; alcoves, stairs, retail walls and bus shelters. These features form a basis for design that engages with the homeless. The underlying premise of this project is that Auckland’s homeless are worthy of attention in the design process. The aim of the project is to develop a set of design techniques that will assist with the design of public space to help achieve inclusiveness and greater social equity.en_NZ
