Another month, another succesful seminar.
This seminar was held on 28 November 2017 at the Jacobs theatrette in Melbourne.
Sam Linke chaired the session and also presented on a range of topics, including City Making, Complete Streets, Autonomous Vehicles, Engaging Young Professionals and other things learnt at the ITE Annual Meeting in Toronto, Canada.
David Nash provided useful observations of pedestrian wayfinding signs in Australia and four North American cities – Toronto, Montreal, Boston and New York City – with learnings on how signage can be made more functional. This topic was of particular interest to local government engineers, planners and urban designers and foreshadowed the launch of some new standards and guidelines on this topic.
Manuel Lawrence’s topic was ‘Smart technologies and planning for better cities – Learnings from Hong Kong’. He discussed transport technologies in cities and provided observations of transport planning initiatives in Hong Kong.
