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.
