“A hugely important read” — Sir Bob Harvey
Auckland is at a turning point. At current growth rates it will pass two million people sometime during the decade beginning 2022, at which point social and infrastructure problems will begin to compound.
Drawing on the latest international thinking on cities, public policy advocate Owen Gill puts forward a radical yet sensible agenda for change to allow Auckland to take its place as a leading hub of the Asia-Pacific region.
Turning Point Auckland features colour images illustrating Auckland’s diverse environments and succinct appendices that summarise the author’s proposals for making this a truly great city.
The book aims to raise the level of public discussion and engagement about the future of New Zealand’s main urban centre.
