Take 2: Practising the art of collaboration for the benefit of our communities….brought to you by the NZ Urban Design Forum, Canterbury & West Coast Transportation Group, Canterbury & Westland Branch of the New Zealand Planning Institute and New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects. 

 

Claire Pascoe will focus on two different international approaches to changing urban mobility and how these are being considered in the New Zealand  context.  The Dutch are ‘optimising humans and marginalising machines’ while North and South America, Spain and other parts of the world are using low-cost, tactical street changes to achieve safety and liveable benefits faster.

NZILA Firth Conference 2019,Christchurch
Change occurs across scales and between many aspects of society, land and design. A change can be a planned event, such as a technology advance, and we react to this with a modicum of adjustment. However, change sometimes occurs rapidly, without warning, and leads to major changes to the systems in place. These encourage innovation, creativity and a rewiring of existing thinking – this type of change is disruptive. While we may malign DISRUPTION with a nuanced negativity, it ultimately forces us to critique what we know and how we operate in an urgent manner and provides us with an opportunity to progress by abandoning those lines that were limiting us.
