Emerging Auckland was launched in March 2016. It was created by Brett Robertson and borne out of a genuine passion for the inner city and his
desire to celebrate the transformation of Auckland, from the ‘great city’ it is in 2016 to ‘thriving international world class city’ in 2023 and beyond.

This genuine excitement for what’s happening today and what lies ahead actually started some time ago with an inner city development tracker that Brett privately maintained. Consequently, he’s captured much of the development history and construction progress of the previous 10 years through photography, featured through Emerging Auckland photo galleries and adding context to the Auckland story. Brett’s background is in graphic and web design, and photography coupled with an appreciation of architecture, construction and the built environment all of which is reflected in the Emerging Auckland ‘product’.
