Fast Forward is the School of Architecture and Planning's biannual lecture series. It aims to foster debate, discussion and development within the disciplines of architecture, urban design and urban planning.

This semester we focus again on the question: how can we do medium density well? With the 2016 Unitary Plan supporting an increase in the density and height of terraced housing and apartments, Auckland has decided to grow up. But how can we do it well? How can we ensure good quality?

From July to September we offer a series of talks and discussions to support the public and profession in effecting decent medium density design for Auckland housing.

All lectures start at 6.30pm, are free and open to the public. Attendance at each lecture earns 10 NZRAB CPD points. Parking is available on Princes Street and under the Owen G. Glenn Building.

The Fast Forward series is generously supported by GIB®
