Session 1 – Masterclass on streets, people and places in regional tourists cities (45 minute masterclass – 45 minutes workshop)

Thursday 7th September 2 - 3.30pm (cost $35pp)
I would like to attend the Steven Burgess Workshop

In this session we talk about the lost art of street design and how it relates to economically important towns such as Queenstown. We will talk about the relationships between the shape of a city/town and how it relates to its movement patters, its place quality and its long term future. We will discuss Queenstown’s top 3transport and land use issues and workshop some methodologies for addressing these issues. Naturally this will be done in the context of the work that is always going on with governments continually trying to improve urban places, in recognition of their economic importance.
