Workshop: Simulated Urban Design - a game!

  • Baptist Church 278 The Parade Wellington, Wellington, 6023 New Zealand (map)

Join us for an interactive workshop to learn more about how cities are designed, planned, and built. It's like a live-action version of SimCity!

Participants will first learn about one of several different roles in Urban Design - maybe a city planner, an engineer, a designer, or something else. What decisions is your character responsible for? What information do they need to do their job? 

Then, you'll work with a team of other newly-trained experts to design and build a new addition to one of our local parks. How do you balance existing infrastructure with new requirements? How will residents access it? How do you make sure the park is exciting AND safe? And can you do it all within budget?

Free childcare will be available on site, and older children are welcome to participate in the workshop.
