Can an urban campus integrate a city centre and transport hub?
The new campus masterplan for MIT provides for the staged development of 65,000m² of teaching and related facilities.
Located at the heart of Manukau City, along the southern edge of Hayman Park, the campus will incorporate a new rail station within the stage 1 building which connects through to the city centre.
As an urban campus integrated within the city centre the landscape and public spaces need to meet multiple functions and have been designed to provide opportunities for social interaction and promotion of educational activities externally.
Boffa Miskell provided urban design and landscape advice on the development of the campus masterplan as well as concept design and documentation of the landscape and public realm components of the Stage 1 development.
