Dunedin Warehouse Precinct Charrette selected as an international exemplar


Urbanismplus’ Dunedin City revitalisation work has been selected as one of 20 international case studies included in the recently published book for the Royal Institute of British Architects: ‘20/20 Visions – Collaborative Planning and Placemaking’ by Charles Campion https://2020visionsbook.com/#about

The series of case studies including examples from Scotland, USA, China, Germany, England, and Iceland present the strengths of the Charrette process and show how they can be delivered on a variety of scales, sectors, and sites. The book highlights the significant success of the Urbanismplus-led Dunedin City Central Strategy process, achieving stakeholder and council buy-in which resulted in $1.1m of council investment in grants and amenity upgrades and $52m of private investment.

The book celebrates the collective intelligence of communities which brings social, economic, and environmental value to designing cities and neighbourhoods through Charette and gives practitioners and communities the inspiration and confidence to introduce Charrettes into their planning processes.
