Auckland Urban Design Panel
Since 2003, significant developments in Auckland have been run past the Auckland Urban Design Panel as part of a concerted council effort to improve the quality of the city’s built environment. Landscape architects play a crucial role in that panel, which also includes urban designers, architects, planners, Māori design experts and representatives from the Property Council of New Zealand.
Landscape architect Rachel de Lambert has just taken on the role of Panel Convenor. In fact landscape architects make up 21 of the 54 members.
