Massey Campus Development Plan
CCM, McIndoe Urban and Isthmus have crafted a very thorough design guideline, underpinned by principles drawn from recent urban design thinking. Their document argues for careful attention to the spaces between buildings, and the edges of those buildings themselves. This is in nice contrast to the apparent current clamour for iconic buildings, procured by institutions looking to make a splash. The Massey campus plan advocates for development that works with the existing loose grained modernist landscape campus setting, and seeks activation through careful consideration at ground level of people and their interactions.
