L1 Geography Field Trip to Wynyard Quarter
On a sunny Wednesday morning in week 6, L1 Geographers set out from the Devonport Ferry Terminal on a field trip to Wynyard Quarter. Before travelling to the CBD, students had been learning in class about the history of this section of Auckland's rapidly transforming waterfront. L1 Geographers were then set the task of investigating different and potential conflicting uses of Wynyard Quarter's planned spaces.
While in Wynyard Quarter, students collected information on different land uses creating a land use map and gathered observational data on conflicting uses of space at Silo Park and Karanga Plaza before finishing off their day out with a well earned lunch around Britomart. On their return to class, students will translate their primary data into presentations and findings that will hopefully help to answer their research aim and gain 4 internal credits.
