Issue 35.2 | A City to Love: Auckland’s Visions of a Public Realm (Fall 2017)

“Auckland’s strategy is comprehensive, integrated, and visionary—and it works.”–Issue 35.2 feature

The people of Auckland, New Zealand, are brilliantly grappling with core issues we all share. This is a story to learn from with powerful optimistic results achieved through a holistic, visionary approach to city building and resiliency. The 2015-16 University of Washington Runstad Affiliate Fellows spent a year investigating Auckland as a case study for place and design led city building. Auckland has nested together vision, financing, and love of place, economics, culture, history and vibrant city living into one multi-pronged strategy. In this ARCADE feature, the fellows share their findings.

This issue also includes ARCADE’s regular columns covering a wide range of design, architecture, urbanism, and art focused topics from a Northwest perspective.

Issue 35.2 is printed in two-color on uncoated stock. The issue was designed by Zach Hooker.
