Creation and erosion of public space

From Nine To Noon, 11:47 am on 9 July 2018

Bill McKay talks to Kathryn about how we are creating public space better than ever before - but it is still being eroded away in several ways. We are starting to see the end of the car (and traffic engineer) domination of space in cities, renewal of a focus on people, bikes and public spaces. Big squares are still important for big events, but when cities increase in density, we also need more, small outdoor spaces to suit individual needs. Bill McKay is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of Auckland.
