Auckland Conversations: Better Streets, Better Places

Mike Lydon is an internationally recognised planner, writer, and advocate for liveable cities. He is a principal of The Street Plans Collaborative, New York - an award-winning planning, design and research-advocacy firm, which strives to create high-quality public spaces, and believes that the key to reversing the harmful effects of suburban sprawl is to promote compact, walkable, mixed-use neighbourhoods. Mike Lydon and his business partner Anthony Garcia are co-authors of the recently published book Tactical Urbanism: Short-term action for Long-term change. Tactical Urbanism is the use of short-term, low-cost and scaleable projects intended to create long-term change. Register for the event here
