adshel housing manifesto day-sm

After the success of our 2006 Manifesto for Architecture, written to mark our 60th anniversary, we have this year, in the spirit of an election year with a strong focus on housing needs, launched the Architectural Centre’s Manifesto for Housing.  

In addition to our tradition postcard medium, the manifesto will also be emblazoned on an Adshel at Wellington’s bus terminal near the railway station for the next two weeks.

Design is an important aspect to achieving good housing, but it must also be seen within a wider context of money supply, factors influencing consumer choice, and wider priorities of planning and urban design for our communities and built environment.  The Manifesto aims to succinctly encapsulate these complex issues.
