Description:
How can we develop better urban environments for New Zealanders? Is it a straightforward matter of better planning and applying more resources? Do we have to settle for second best? What of the lessons learned from those who have come before us? In this first book on the contradictions and paradoxes of the design of New Zealand's urban places, Garth Falconer suggests that these are exciting times to be thinking about such issues. With better understanding of our unique context, together with broad collaboration across all sectors and a commitment to creative, resourceful action, there are alternatives to accepting soaring house prices, congested traffic, a bland and illegible urban landscape, growing gaps between different peoples, and hopelessly complicated urban planning regulations. Living in Paradox explores the dynamic and intriguing story of this young, vigorous and intriguingly complex country. It is an optimistic, far-reaching book which documents the rich history of earlier visions, analyses many of the various trials and pitfalls of the past, and paints an engaging picture of the way things could be in New Zealand's towns and cities.
