People Building Better Cities

John Brockhoff, Kati Westlake, Chris Johnson, Paul Pholeros, Amelia Thorpe, Geoff Turnbull lead this panel discussion on who should be involved in city making and how? This is one of the questions at the centre of NSW Government deliberations as it seeks to reform the NSW planning system. The question is an important one for architects and planners and also raises issues about the right to the city. This panel discussion will localise issues raised in the traveling exhibition ‘People Building Better Cities: Participation and Inclusive Urbanization’, and seek audience views. Panellists include academics, urban practitioners, citizens, and developers. The evening will begin with a short presentation by Anna Rubbo (CSUD, Earth Institute, Columbia University) about the origins and purpose of the People Building Better Cities exhibition.

The Thursday Night Lecture series explores the latest approaches to architecture, design and the built environment. Each year, the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning selects speakers from amongst our lecturers, alumni and distinguished industry professionals to share their approaches to the challenges our society faces. The lectures are held in the Wilkinson Building, University of Sydney.
