Studio Pacific Principal and Landscape Specialist, Stuart Dun will speak at UrbanismNZ next week, a conference focusing on the issues of urban design and planning with the inclusion of the property development sector across Aotearoa.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Shaping Our Urban Legacy’ and Stuart joins a panel to discuss our recent work on Te Putahi Ladies Mile in Queenstown and a comprehensive approach to development that seeks to provide a step change in growth management for the region. Stuart will present alongside other members of the multi-disciplinary Ladies Mile Consortium (LMC) who we partnered with to deliver the project.
'Urbanism Aotearoa is a conference about making connections to bring about change. Our conversation started in 2018 and with a pandemic enforced hiatus, we are very pleased to be able to continue this in 2023.
Our focus is on the complex systems with interconnected issues directed by different stakeholders but seeking the same outcome - good urban environments for all people. As such, this conference is put together by a collective of organisations and urban professionals to stimulate discussion.
Urbanism NZ provides a diversity of conversations on our urban environments and their delivery including the evolution of urban design in Aotearoa through mātauranga Māori; climate responsiveness; designing for a healthy urban environment; working better with communities; infrastructure requirements and connectivity; land use and transportation.'
