The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, The Australian National Outlook Report and many other studies all identify the built environment as a critical area in which to address the challenges of climate change and population growth. The Australian Institute of Architects has itself has endorsed ‘The Architects Declaration of a Climate Emergency’ noting the critical need to ‘strengthen work practices to create architecture and urbanism that has a more positive impact on the world around us’.
As Hobart deals with a property boom and unprecedented levels of population growth, how do we manage manage the expectation of new development while minimising its impacts on the environment? What are the considerations for managing new development in one of Australia’s most historically significant cities? And how do we build new places that not only meet the need for additional housing but creates socially sustainable and resilient communities?
