Fast Forward Autumn 2019 | Doing Medium Density Well

12 March - 28 May

Fast Forward is the bi-annual lecture series hosted by the School of Architecture and Planning. It aims to foster debate, discussion and development within the disciplines of architecture, urban design and urban planning. This semester we continue our focus 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 while ensuring quality?

From March to May 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 NZIA and ADNZ CPD points.

The Fast Forward series is generously supported by GIB®
