This research project explores ways in which the interstitial spaces of industrial areas can be designed for public enjoyment, with the intention of revealing the industrial sublime. It will employ experiential analysis in an attempt to identify the appealing and compelling nature of industrial areas, using those surrounding Mangere Inlet, Auckland as the project location. Using the inlet as a permanent point of reference, precedents of both post-industrial and new industrial parks and coastal pathways will inform a phased design response to help reveal the enjoyment industrial areas present. Ultimately, the aim of this research is to develop a strategy that will assist with the design of public space within industrial areas to help create inclusive places for people and present industrial landscapes as places of enjoyment.
