Talk: Balancing people and place when designing cities

Are you interested in how the importance of people and place should design city transport networks and streetscapes? We're back with another Creative City Conversation!
Transport is an enabler and is the lifeblood to any place, town or city. It connects us and improves our health and wellbeing. It helps to unlock growth and shapes places, cities and the way we work, live and play.

Over the last 100 years, towns and cities around the world have prioritised movement over place, dictating the way they function. Examples of the domination of movement at the expense of place can be seen all over New Zealand too. However, things are changing.

In the third talk in our series, Liz Halsted will explore how cities are responding to these challenges and outline what Palmy can do to bring outcomes, people and places into more of a balance with the way we move.

About Liz Halsted:

Liz's work includes developing the Auckland and London Roads and Streets Frameworks, providing social, environmental, economic and cultural outcomes through strategy and design. The frameworks incorporate minimum design levels of service for all transport modes, including walking.

During 11 years in London, Halsted was also responsible for London’s Streetscape Design Manual and strategic walk network, led the London urban design review panel, and delivered the Making Walking Count Programme. She worked on the Kings Cross regeneration, including the redevelopment of Kings Cross and St Pancras and Euston Stations, and the development and delivery of crossrail and high-speed rail.

From 2005-10 she ran an innovation precinct in London which trialled many things, including tactical urbanism schemes, car-sharing, London’s cycle hire scheme, differential parking charges, Legible London (London’s accessible pedestrian way-finding scheme) and electric and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure.
