Fast Forward Autumn 2019 Lecture Series, HUDA
Urban design agencies differ from private developments. They bear a stronger focus on the provision of affordable and social housing, as well as extra public spaces and a broader range of community facilities, such as schools.

In 2018 the government announced the creation of the Housing and Urban Development Authority (HUDA). This initiative could become an essential game-changer for cities struggling to cope with housing shortages. Significantly, HUDA will have the capacity to: acquire land under the Public Works Act, override the Resource Management Act, council plans and processes, and consent its own projects.

Join us for a panel and audience discussion around the new authority and its subsequent pros and cons:

Fast Forward Autumn 2019 Lecture Series, Tiny Houses
Tiny houses may not be everyone’s idea of medium density but internationally they are becoming a very popular and affordable housing alternative, and a means of exploiting small and difficult sites such as household backyards.

With a tiny footprint, they cut down on construction costs and environmental impacts. What’s more, you can put them on wheels or on the back of a truck making them fully transportable. However, they often come with Building Code and council planning compliance issues.

Presenters with hands-on experience will discuss their adventures with tiny housing:
