dc.description.abstract Art education is currently undergoing a transformation. As the landscape of contemporary art continues to expand, its educational counterpart – the art school – is endeavouring to keep pace with its broadening tolerability and increased social appreciation. The art school, which historically has operated behind semi-closed doors, is re-establishing itself as a cultural communicator to the public and an open environment for creative discourse of both practical and pedagogical concerns. In an effort to enrich its public interface, the art school for the twenty-first century must engage with the imperatives of an unknown, but future orientated cultural economy. The aim of the design component of this thesis is to provide a hypothetical resolution to the issue of decentralization in The University of Auckland’s creative arts faculty - the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries (NICAI). In order to assert the intentions of an art school that is concerned with its public interface, an appropriate site was chosen in Auckland’s downtown cityscape, detached from the university campus, allowing for a programmatic threading of art education with non-artistic programs. This creates a new reciprocal relationship between the school, the artist, and the local urban framework, where the school becomes an educator to the city and the city a stimulus to the school. A new urban anthropological typology is invented – the art public. This thesis project investigates the potentials of designing an art school using transprogramming as a core strategy for design and planning decisions. Trans-programming allows for the transgression of borders and the overlapping of boundary conditions (programmatic, social, and personal) between various collectives of congruent communities. This strategy creates new forms of communication, knowledge transmission, discussion, and interaction in an attempt to forge innovative cultural experimentation and advancement. Through this new permeable interface, a dynamic relationship is formed involving cooperation and sharing through effective social encounters and collisions, both expected and unexpected. en
