A beach. Three houses. A road. A valley. The local park. Subdivisions. Schools. Apartments, plazas, waterfronts.
In the era of the global, consumption and land prices and mass transit and starchitecture make big cities bigger. Small urban offers a compelling alternative, a resistance to the globalizing trend a mindset that connects the local to the global, especially in Aotearoa New Zealand with its network of small urban landscapes. Networks of the small urban in cities, towns and villages offer a refreshing sensibility for a challenging future.
Join us in Wellington in 2017 for a conversation on the Small Urban.
The 2017 NZILA Conference will be held at Wellington's Embassy Theatre.
The event will include the Resene NZILA Pride of Place Landscape Architecture Awards function.
