  • Su, Bin (ICECE 2012: International Conference on Environmental and Civil Engineering, 2012)
    According to the Auckland climate, building passive design more focus on improving winter indoor thermal and health conditions. Based on field study data of indoor air temperature and relative humidity close to ceiling and ...
  • Su, Bin (ICSBIE: International Conference on Sustainable Building and Infrastructure Engineering, 2011)
    Auckland has a temperate climate with comfortable warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. An Auckland school normally does not need air conditioning for cooling during the summer and only need heating during the winter. ...
  • Su, Bin (ICESSE 2011: International Conference on Environmental Systems Science and Engineering, 2011)
    The ‘wind-rain’ house has a courtyard with glazed roof, which allows more direct sunlight to come into indoor spaces during the winter. The glazed roof can be partially opened or closed and automatically controlled to ...
  • Potangaroa, Regan; Mair, Julie Samia (Construction, Building and Real Estate Research Conference of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, 2010)
    There is usually no purposeful connection between the physical planning of refugee camps and the social outcomes for those living in these camps with each being treated separately by independent groups or more often the ...
  • Zare, Mohammad R.; Wilkinson, Suzanne; Potangaroa, Regan (Construction, Building and Real Estate Research Conference of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, 2010)
    New Zealand is located in an earthquake prone part of the world where earthquakes are the most common natural hazard in New Zealand. Consequently, earthquake vulnerability especially in lifelines is of great concern of ...
  • van Raat, Tony (ConnectED 2010 - 2nd International Conference on Design Education, 2010)
    Cooperative ventures in international education frequently involve transitioning students from one learning paradigm to another. This is particularly the case in joint programmes in architecture where lateral thinking and ...
  • Kestle, Linda; Potangaroa, Regan (18th CIB World Building Congress, 2010)
    The UN Cluster approach came from the Humanitarian Response Review (HRR) commissioned by the UN in 2005. The intention of that review was to address apparent failures in the speed, quality and effectiveness of humanitarian ...
  • Lee, Ja Yeun; Potangaroa, Regan (Participatory Design and Appropriate Technology for Post-Disaster Reconstruction, 2010)
    Surplus commercial shipping containers have re-gained popularity among developed countries recently and are often associated with fashionable, prefabricated second-homes, hotels, and even cities. However, when applied in ...
  • Francis, Kerry; Smith, Gregory (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
    In Auckland in the 1950s a group of architecture students and young graduates were exploring innovative techniques of small scale construction. While these explorations can be seen in the context of a broader, global ...
  • Rennie, Julian (ConnectED 2010 - 2nd International Conference on Design Education, 2010)
    The Design studio learning system within most Tertiary Design Schools has a unique critique method, (often called “The Crit”). The Crit event itself is rather a “veiled” process and has been analyzed and written about ...
  • Murphy, Chris (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
    In 2004 the New Zealand Government reviewed the New Zealand Building Act. The review was prompted by increasing concern at the lack of weather tightness evident in buildings constructed since the initial performance based ...
  • Newman, Neil; Francis, Kerry (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
    This paper explores the feasibility and potential use of locally grown timber alternatives to chemically treated Pinus radiata for domestic construction in the Northland region. Current and potential locally grown alternative ...
  • Francis, Kerry (Presentation (non-conference), 2010)
    In Europe and the United States, landscape architecture came late to the modernist party. New Zealand was no exception. While architects here were exploring variants of modernism from the late 1930s, modernist landscapes ...
  • Haines, Leslie (Function and Design. Kyriiri Oy, Helsinki, Finland. Publication Series, 2010)
    This paper overviews the current patchiness of the vegetation in urban Auckland City, and introduces a range of Bachelor of Landscape Architecture student designs that focus on landscape ecology issues ...
  • Turner, David (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
    Processes of intensification lead to some unforeseen consequences. One such unplanned consequence is the rearrangement of existing buildings in new or revised spatial patterns. In pursuit of higher densities, large lot ...
  • Bogunovich, Dushko; Wagner, Cesar (54th International Federation for Housing and Planning (IFHP) World Congress 2010, 2010)
    Porto Alegre and Auckland - being port cities on river estuaries, comparable in size and age, and sharing a number of morphological analogies - are similar enough to enable and justify a comparative analysis and evaluation ...
  • Potangaroa, Regan; Chan, Tao (Construction, Building and Real Estate Research Conference of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, 2010)
    Spatial Syntax is a set of concepts and techniques for the analysis of spatial configurations that were originally developed by Hillier and Hanson in the late 1980’s (Space Syntax, 2009). They were intended to be a tool ...
  • Beckett, James V.; Wilkinson, Suzanne; Potangaroa, Regan (Construction, Building and Real Estate Research Conference of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, 2010)
    Recovery is a vital phase in an emergency management and civil defence cycle aimed towards long-term community resilience. Leadership plays a crucial role in an emergency situation, especially in the response and recovery ...
  • Balle, Brad; McConchie, Graeme (On the border: Architectural science in theory and practice, 2010)
