Natural and built environments provide the setting and backdrop by which we live our daily lives, impacting on our emotions and senses, and our sense of community and identity. 
This year’s NZPI Conference, Changing Places, looks at the merging relationship between the built and the natural environment, and how we integrate the multi-purpose design of our urban spaces with the requirements of the ‘us’ that is you and me. Changing Places will be hosted in Wellington, which will pick up on the theme of its location being that of our
central government, as well as the focus of the RMA reforms changing the planning landscape.
Be a part of the change: Each year the conference draws planning leaders, Iwi, and practitioners from local government, universities, and consultancies, into a forward focused, expansive discourse on the challenges and opportunities ahead in relationship to planning best practice and implementation.

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.
