He hītori mō te hanga ā-tāone o Tāmaki Makaurau This publication outlines the development of Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland’s urban form, from pre-colonial Māori settlement to the modern Auckland metropolis. It attempts to capture the context and main drivers behind the growth of the city, including infrastructure provision, housing development, and in later decades, town planning. The analysis is chronological and discussion is divided into one or two decades at a time.
