Demonstration and Television Coverage

In March, 1985, staff and students of the Integrated Design Subshool (precursor to the Community Design Studio) at the University of Auckland undertook to investigate the detail and quality of the Auckland City Council's proposal for a $68M performing arts centre. The New Zealand Institute of Architects had publicly voiced disquiet over what they considered to be an outdated and outmoded design, and the team at the Univesity undertook to do an in-depth analysis of the proposal. What started out as an attempt to assist the Council to review its proposal degenerated into an ugly political battle between the Mayor and the design team. This PDF tells the story of the project. Parts were originally published in the New Zealand Achitect No. 6, 1985, and in Sanoff, H.,Participatory Design:Theory and Techniques, University of North Carolina. 1990.

The story is presented in two PDFs.

Part 1 is a reprint of the articles written by myself and my ex-colleague John Hunt and published in New Zealand Architect. It gives a general overview of the project and describes the form of the design, its main parameters, and the confrontation between the Community Design Studio (then known as the Integrated Design Studio) and the Auckland City Council.

Part 2 is a hitherto unpublished record of much of the media commentaries, toghether with the story behind them - in particular, the duplicity of the Council and of its Mayor, Dame Catherine Tizzard who later went on to become the Governor General (the Queen's representative) of New Zealand.
