Welcome

This curated platform exhibits outstanding student work from the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Auckland. Our archive features the best design projects from the Bachelor of Architecture Studies and the first year of Master of Architecture (Professional) programmes produced each semester in each year group since 2020.

Please select a category in the main menu above or on this site map to explore all our available projects.

We’ve also recently added a new extension to the page: TAITUARĀ

You can find it on the menu, at the top right-hand side of the page

T I E – T W O – A H – R A H

Meaning ‘backbone’, as well as a metaphor for the tide against your back navigating you forward.

In alignment with the aspirations of Taumata Teitei, TAITUARĀ aspires to be a design tool kit for students and staff who are wanting to explore the possibilities of Te Ao Māori within Architecture. TAITUARĀ presents five Māori uara/values for the purpose of exploration.

These values are: Āhuatanga, Whakapapa, Whenua, Kaitiakitanga, and Tikanga. These uara/values will then be used to study six architectural projects.
