Martin Bryant - New Urban Agenda

From Sunday Morning, 11:25 am on 9 October 2016

Victoria University professor of landscape architecture Martin Bryant's research has been used by the United Nations to formulate its New Urban Agenda that's due to be voted on at a UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development next month. Professor Bryant is perhaps best known in New Zealand for the jumping platform he designed for Wellington's waterfront. It's a part of his philosophy that sees fun as just as crucial as robust infrastructure when it comes to building truly resilient cities.
