“To create a liveable city that prospers for many years to come, it is of the utmost importance to build with people, not just for them, to validate concepts and ideas before they are put into effect.”
“If we want to create a different future, we need to rethink governance within the built environment, too, and not just continue to develop in the ways that we’ve always done, when clearly this is not working.”
