Auckland, New Zealand
(2013 - Ongoing)

NBW has completed work on a 100-year master plan to guide the development of Cornwall Park, one of New Zealand’s most valued public urban spaces. The plan balanced three important landscape layers: the Cultural Landscape of the Maori and early European settlers, the historic landscape of founder Sir John Logan Campbell’s original vision, and the agricultural landscape of New Zealand cattle and sheep farming. The plan creates a pedestrian oriented landscape, expands the park’s capacity to reveal and sustain healthy urban ecologies, and will educate the public and delight visitors of all ages.
