Message to all Spatial Design students

Morena everyone,

This message is to encourage all design students to attend Professor Brian Lucid’s Head of School Address tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon.

This lecture and the advising event that follows is relevant to all spatial students, not just first year.

The details are:

“The Shift – Design in Transition”

Lecture by Professor Brian Lucid, Head of School

This will be followed by Academic Advising on Level C of Te Ara Hihiko, 5-6pm. Advising is particularly useful for first years, but it’s also open to any older students who are in two minds about their course selections. There will also be short talks in Presentation D & E: VCD, Textiles, Photo electives, Drawing for designers. Spatial Design lecturer Meg Rollandi will be on Level C TAH to share her wisdom on the various year levels and help mentor any one with course questions.

nga mihi,

Julieanna Preston

Acting coordinator Spatial Design

North American vs Japanese zoning

Zoning regulations, Japan vs USA.

tldr: USA specifies what is allowed, which is quite restrictive. Japan specifies what is not allowed, so anything goes as long as it doesn’t create a problem.

The article lists a number of consequences, including the impacts on diversity and sprawl.
