Dunedin Research Project- CNZ Quick Response Funding 2013

With the support of Creative New Zealand and the people of Dunedin I embarked on a research project in Dunedin this past March-April. The project intended to respond to the public’s mixed reactions to the proposed construction of a new 28 story/ 96m tall five-star hotel on Dunedin’s waterfront. The public’s objections focused on the unsympathetic design and extreme height of the hotel that would dominate the city’s skyline. My project involved finding a way to show the city an indication of how high 96m really might look.
