NZILA Small Urban Conference 2017

New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects
Date of Event: 
Wednesday, April 5, 2017 (All day) to Saturday, April 8, 2017 (All day)

The conference theme of Small Urban has four sub themes which are:

· Opportunistic Urban
· Wild Urban
· Advocating Urban, and
· Moving Urban

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.
