dc.description.abstractThis dissertation is a design proposal for a series of transitional infrastructures that articulate the experiential journey of the Te Paki Coastal Walk, Northland, Aotearoa New Zealand. It draws on perceptual aesthetics, modular systems, ideas of vernacular architecture, theories of fittingness, and different ways land is constructed as significant through stories and memories. It has unfolded through a methodology of experimental production at layered scales, and exploits an alternative approach to designing infrastructures that seeks to be suitable for a walking journey through a changing environment. These transitions mark the present as the moment when future becomes past. The project presents irregular landscape forms that accommodates the journey with surfaces that function as walking infrastructure, laid out to exploit particular views of transitions that captivate the journey.en_NZ
