Conventional urban and regional planning is dominated by economic development agendas and ignores urban growth issues resulting from complex geography and landscape. This paper proposes an alternative approach, based on design-led spatial solutions drawn from a region’s unique geography. This design-led-planning method uses cartographic observation and sketching of spatial trends for regional growth, coupled with imagination and visual interpretation of the real landscape and geography data at the regional scale, thus enabling new, important ways of seeing the future. Using Auckland as a case study, we demonstrate how the ‘landscape regionalism’ – a derivative of ‘landscape urbanism’ - enables adaptive spatial visions which are fresh and bold but nevertheless closely reflect the physical reality of a growing city-region. 1.
