Future Ecology Designed

Sustainable design theory manifested in products, infrastructure, and graphic representation. A utopian glimpse of a future New Zealand where environmental considerations are of tantamount importance, and society is designed to accommodate the native ecosystem.

Tank Farm revisited

Over a year ago we posted on the initial design proposal for Auckland's Tank Farm.
After public consultation and some tweaking, a revised plan is now up and apparently has the go-ahead.

Extensive public feedback and ongoing discussions with key stakeholders have led to the following key changes:
  • the location and extent of public space
  • the potential for an iconic building site at the northern point
  • the nature and extent of Daldy Street Linear Park
  • the capacity to enable the city to host marine events
  • increased land for the established marine industries.

Looks like 2008 onwards will be busy years of construction for Auckland. I still quite like the overall design proposal, and the addition of more public space and potential for a iconic building is very promising. Lets hope they get it right.
