Carlaw Park Improve access between CBD/University and Domain Create an Entertainment area & focal point eg. Stanley St Circus Enable Greenway with cycleways and walkways from Newmarket to waterfront Provide parking and rail services for Domain Museum & Parnell Iconic Gateway Repatriate original Domain land Revitalise Heritage warehouses Daylighting of Waipapa Stream New Zealand feel with iconic structure nested compatibly into valley of native trees and streams Constitution Hill, Albert Park – part of green way leading to CBD
Eden Park mapped onto Carlaw Park Eden Park Stadium fits easily onto a Carlaw Park reamalgamated back into the Domain. The Caltex Station site would be needed for street access and setback. SH16 Parnell Rd Railway
A Stadium by a major connected highway SH16 is immediately at Carlaw Parks front door SOLUTION
A Stadium with close proximity to rail Looking North – next stop Britomart Looking South – next stop Newmarket Carlaw Park is a site for a Stadium beside a dual track railway line SOLUTION
Stadium as an Emergency Centre Evacuation Centre Near Hospital –Pandemic –Natural Hazard –Extreme Weather August 28, 2005 Residents are bringing their belongings and lining up to get into the New Orleans Superdome which has been opened as a hurricane shelter in advance of Hurricane Katrina. Most residents have evacuated the city and those left behind do not have transportation or have special needs. SOLUTION
Car parking for the Domain, Parnell etc. The Stadium could be elevated on a podium servicing as a car park. The Stadium Car park would address parking needs of: –Stadium –Stanley Park Tennis –Vector Arena –University (including new Business School) –Businesses in the CBD –Parnell –Domain The Domain could be returned as a Park for the people, not a Car-Park as it has become. SOLUTION
Weather Contingency for Domain events The Domain hosts the largest events in New Zealand over the Summer months. The Stadium could serve as an indoor contingency for large outdoor events in situations of poor weather. Encourage more events as risks could be better managed. SOLUTION
Parnell-Domain Connection Parnell once bordered the Domain, now the railway line divides the two. Connections over the rail via the Stadium could seamlessly connect Parnell to the Domain and provide safe access day and night. People from Parnell could walk or cycle to the Domain and save the use of the car. Similarly Parnell is made more immediately accessible to hospital staff during their lunch breaks. SOLUTION
University-Domain connection New Zealands largest University has little in the way of sports fields and large open spaces. The University is disconnected with the nearby Domain by SH16 and limited pedestrian and cycle connection. Bridge Connections over the SH16 via the Stadium could seamlessly connect University to the Domain and provide safe access day and night. SOLUTION
Parnell – CBD connection Parnell is New Zealands oldest suburb but it is islanded by the infrastructure of SH16 and the railway. The Stadium could connect via servicing bridges the Domain and CBD to Parnell The area near the corner of Beach Road and Stanley St could be developed into an entertainment area SOLUTION
Greenway access from Stadium to Queen St SOLUTION View today from what could be the main entrance of the Stadium looking towards the CBD – a pedestrian greenway all the way to the Queen St via University campus & Albert Park. This convenient passage would put Auckland on show to tourists.
Turn the armpit into a circus Major cities have centres for night entertainment. Often these areas have video walls, and places of focus such as round-a-bouts eg. New York Times Square, Shibuya Square (Tokyo), Piccadilly Circus (London). The areas in the vicinity of Beach Road/Stanley St is an opportunity for a key pedestrian connection point but now devoid of design. Could develop into a visually exciting place by Carlaw park this role as a place for people watching. Close access to the Stadium, Vector Arena for after match social occasions and visual ambience. Rail, roads, people, video walls, lights all dynamically choreographed in 3D. Shibuya (Tokyo) Times Square (New York) SOLUTION
Turn an armpit into a circus A gateway roundabout could be established precisely at the very point of arrival by: - Tainui Canoe - First Settler ships (Jane Gifford, and Duchess of Argille) in s Beach Road waterfront
Turn an armpit into a circus The roundabout at this location is the first landing site of the Tainui Canoe to the Southern shore of the Waitemata harbour.
Celebrate Aucklands genesis as a park Streams shown on 1856 map by John Kinder Mechanics Bay Newmarket Domain Waiparuru Stream Parnell Waipapa Stream Chief Apihai Te Kawau (Ngati Whatua) Gov.William Hobson Carlaw Park Auckland was born as a Park in July 1840 as the space between two streams -the Waipapa (Parnell), and the Waiparuru (Grafton). The historic meeting place where the two streams met is in front of Carlaw Park. The streams could be Daylighted and featured in the design of the stadium (eg. Frank Lloyd Wrights Falling Water) to embed place making into the Stadium design. SOLUTION
Repatriate the original Domain Carlaw Park was in the original Domain as defined by the streams. The Domain is the oldest park in New Zealand and its original integrity should be protected for this and future generations to enjoy. SOLUTION
Carlaw Park was in the Domain Carlaw Park site today Parnell Road Fraser Park Augustus Terrace Domain is defined inside the paths of the Waipapa and Waiparuru Stream 1846 Map of the Ropewalk and swamp where Carlaw Park is today Carlaw Park is on Waipapa Stream swamp land.
Carlaw Park was in the Domain Carlaw Park and the Mainline Steam Sites were part of the Domain. This map shows the land parcel boundaries defined by the Parnell bank of the Waipapa Stream in 1850s. The 1914 Railway line defines the Domain today. Over 4.3 hectares has gone missing from the Domain since Carlaw Park & Domain 1850s map of Parnell and Carlaw Park area
Let the Domain reach again into Parnell This map illustrates the Mainline Steam area as being part of the Domain in 1870s (known then as Auckland Park). The Domain has a boundary with Gibraltar Cres Properties). Note Parnell Road was then known as Epsom Road. Brookside was the name of Col. Matsons property as its boundary was a Brook (ie. Waipapa Stream). Similarly Claybrook is named for its Waipapa stream association. Parnells Claybrook House (1842) is one of the oldest houses in Auckland.
Let the Domain reach again into Parnell Mainline Steam Sheds are on original Domain land. After repatriation this area Could be retained as a heritage park, and front lawn for Parnell, where the Domain reaches into the suburb The ugly facades facing the Domain and Railway could be invigorated into the front facades onto park land. Retail, and event services could liven the connections and expand Parnell to embrace the Domain. The allies could become passages to gates, and livened up with retail and cafes. SOLUTION
An Act to provide for the Management of the Public Domains [2nd November 1860] This Act defined the Auckland Domain (Government Domain) in Schedule 1 as: All that piece or parcel of land situated in the Parish of Waitemata in the County of Eden, containing 196 acres more or less, and known as the Government Domain or Auckland Park; - bounded towards the North-east by Suburban Section, No links, 300 links, 310 links, 306 links, 306 links, 304 links, and 300 links, and by a stream. Towards the South East by a road 1876 links, and by a road 960 links and 560 links. Towards the South by a road 569 links, and by a road 1187 links. Towards the South-west by a road 1612 links. Towards the West by the Provincial Hospital Grounds 299 links, 520 links, 824 links, and 220 links, by a stream dividing it from Suburban Section No. 18, to a marked Puriri tree, and by the said Suburban Section No. 18, 691 links and 396 links. Towards the North- west and North by a Mill race, by a line 175 links, and again by the Mill race, and by a line 423 links, and 405 links, to where the Boundary commenced. 196 acres = 79.3 hectares (over 4.3 ha missing now) 1 hectare equals 10,000 square meters
Daylight the Waipapa Stream The historic Waipapa Stream could be daylighted and the natural heritage of Aucklands beginnings restored and preserved. The stream could once again flow along its historic 1840 path. The stream defines the footprint of Pukekawa, the volcanic cone of the Museum Hill. This The stream could be recognised in the iconic structure of the Stadium with techniques like Frank Lloyd Wrights Falling Water to create belongingness to the land SOLUTION

Celebrate Heritage on Stanley St. These heritage warehouses and old pub have great character and could be used In hosting events associated with RWC. SOLUTION 1856 photo by Kinder showing the Strand (Swan) 150 year old pub – The Stand Hotel (Swan)
Pre-Carlaw Park Robertson Rope Walk initially powered by the flow of the Waipapa – Opened on May 11th 1843 (Kinder -1863) James Robertson Largest Rope in the World (1903)Waipapa Stream entering into Rope Walk (Stevens -1887) Waipapa Robertson Rope Walk Chinese Market Garden James Robertson Built a Rope Walk to manufacture cordage for ships rigging, mining, whaling, hang-man nooses, church bells and a myriad of other uses. The Rope Walk was funded by Gov. Robert FitzRoy, ex-Captain of the Beagle and shared his cabin with Charles Darwin's for 5 ½ years during which he formulated his revolutionary ideas that lead to him writing the Origin of Species.
Cluster the Sporting Facilities Synergies for: –Stanley St Tennis –Rugby –Cricket –Vector Arena –Bowling –Etc. SOLUTION
Easy Pedestrian accessibility Passages down Parnells historic streets could lead to different gate entrances of the Stadium enabling the Stadium to be reached from all sides for quick filling, and Rapid dispersing of crowds. SOLUTION
Easy Pedestrian accessibility Looking from Mainline Steam sheds towards Carlaw Park (on other Side of the railway track). This view is taken from original Domain land on the Parnell side of the track. This area could be amalgamated back Into the Domain, and provide parkland and access to a station and Stadium
Carlaw Park is the perfect Stadium Site Emergency assembly place near hospital Car parking facility for the Domain Weather contingency venue Parnell – Domain connection enabled Parnell – CBD connection enabled University – Domain connection enabled Stadium-Queen St Greenway SH16 Two rail stations could serve events – Kingdon St for Western lines, Museum Station for Southern lines. Aucklands Armpit to transform into a circus Repatriation of original Domain land Stream Daylighting Urban renewal Cluster sporting facilities for synergies
