Presentation for UDAL

Last December wOnder’s leading man Hans Oerlemans gave a lecture at the UDAL Forum on culture in planning and design.


First prof. Darryl Low Choy talked about the current challenges in Queensland towards planning and culture. He then showed the research Griffith University has done on Indigenous values in the landscape of South East Queensland.


Hans started examining the ‘old=bad’ mentality of modern planning. He argued it is an important barrier towards a sustainable future. Next he showed how the alternative attitude of ‘preservation through development’ principle changed planning in Netherlands over the last 15 years.


The forum ended with discussions in several groups and a sharing of their findings.
