Past Event

20 June 2013, 11:00am - 12:30pm

64 Banbury Road, Oxford

This seminar is hosted by the Oxford Programme for the Future of Cities and the Institute for Science, Innovation and Society, both part of the Oxford Martin School

Speaker: Dushko Bogunovich, Associate Professor of Urban Design, Departments of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, Unitec Institute of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand

Summary: The lecture is primarily about the future and the present of New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland. But parallels will be drawn with Oxford and London, as well as China, in order to show that urban sprawl is a global trend and that it is unlikely that governments and planning authorities have the means to contain it.
