WGTN 2040

The Wellington City Council has at last started the process of telling you about WGTN 2040, the proposed Vision for the future – 29 years in the future to be exact.

Wellington Symposium

 

WELLINGTON SYMPOSIUM – 60 CPD Points

WHAT IS THE FUTURE? WHAT IS THE VISION FOR THE CENTRAL CITY?

 

Can Wellington maintain its sense of place?

Events have overtaken Wellington, there is a major focus on Auckland with its new governance structure and Christchurch with its massive rebuilding programme.

Coupled with this, the Deputy Prime Minister has presented Wellington a challenge to consider a diversification away from a perceived reliance on the public sector.

As a response, the Wellington Branch of the NZIA is to host a Symposium to focus on matters of interest to architects, urban designers, other built environment professionals and those passionate about Wellington:

Access – Do we have the right balance between transport modes?

Heritage protection – Does it compromise the safety of the community?

Public space – Is this part of the glue to hold Wellington together?

Sense of Place – Hills and harbour – do they define our sense of place?

 

Stuart Niven, Urban Design Director at the Department of Planning and Community Development for the Victorian State Government will set the scene.

 

Date: Sunday 10th July

Time: 9:30am – 4:30pm (buffet lunch and morning and afternoon tea provided)

Venue: Rutherford House, Victoria University, Bunny Street, Wellington

Cost: $40.00 +gst (NZIA members) or
