dc.description.abstract Today and tomorrow’s complexity and complication of unpredictable emergence of socio-economic unbalance, political hatred and cultural mistrust patterns make life more difficult who are among the unprivileged society. Gratifyingly for New Zealand, Aotearoa, translated as ‘bird’ (alternatively to ‘long white cloud’)1, celebrates its glorious grant for being the best ‘liveable city’ in the world: Auckland. Occupied in its exhilaration Aucklanders subsume its South (South Auckland), ranked as the most deprived region filled with overcrowded households, like many other cities around the world. Its repercussion have expelled families into ‘homelessness’ (which is different from ‘rooflessness’ who are the rough sleepers on streets). 2 Vexingly however many are unaware, or in effect, perhaps careless or pusillanimous. What are the aspirations for the victims in South Auckland that implement efficacy for their introspection by the means of the built environment? Theorist Jacques Derrida in his letter to Peter Eisenman admonishes political construction of space to prioritise low social stratum supervising a destructive and productive architectural apparatus for positive social ecology. Reviving the historicised letter, this thesis submits human as datum, by-produced in a time-sensitive system via supplementary theoretical groundings of the Icarus complex, an ardent ambition to ‘fly’. Superimposed onto the Auckland International Airport, which also happens to be in South Auckland, the haven echoes the airport’s powerful transposing paradigm that eliminates all social stratum. Its result is a form of heteroclite: deviating from the ordinary rule; eccentric, abnormal. Inverting this autonomous formulation into an implosive spatial itinerary, Heteroclite Haven encapsulates a heterotopic, fictive and autotelic spatial proprioceptive experience that is remedial, sympathetic and pedagogical. en
