Hosted by Wellington City Council and the Urban Design Forum, the conference will have a prominent focus on Urban Design. To be held from 14 – 15 May 2018 at TSB Bank Auditorium – Shed 6 Wellington, New Zealand, the program will look at the state of urbanism in New Zealand and the role of urban design in significant urban issues.

Making the connection to bring about change, topics for discussion include:

LIVE: are we providing the right type of housing in the right place?

MOVE: how do we make sure our movement systems deliver the best possible urban outcomes?

HEART CENTRE: understanding the impact of planning policy with respect to our town and city centres

DESIGN QUALITY: the value of good urban design and having the right tools and processes to achieve good design outcomes
