            "A look at a range of small houses around New Zealand, and the strategies the owners used to get a toehold in the tight housing market. From building a secondary dwelling on an existing family section, to tiny houses on pocket handkerchief pieces of land, these approaches to hous...ing will give ideas and inspiration to all wondering how it can be possible to own a first home in the twenty-first century. Each entry begins with a statement about the strategy the owner used to achieve a home of their own. The houses range in size from 100 square metres right down to a very cosy 34 square metres! Beautifully photographed, and including plans and costs, the houses presented are in Puhoi, west and north Auckland, Raglan, Tamahere, Taupiri, Whanganui, New Plymouth, Wellington and Christchurch."--Publisher information.

            Stations are places of great significance for passengers and no-travelling users. They serve the growing needs of an increasingly mobile population and are enjoyed by a wide range of users. With millions of journeys made via the urban rail each day, designers should acknowledge t...he importance of rail passengers. The design guidelines in this book place passengers as the first priority of the design process, bearing in mind that all the elements of station design should be so arrange as to meet their expectations. This book also provides an overview of what established designers consider to be important in the planning and design of metro stations, with considerable number of selected new an extension projects, as well as major reconstruction and maintenance programmes. This book is intended to assist sponsors and project managers through the design and development process.

            Making a city that works for children creates a city that better serves all of its residents, across ages and abilities. Yet we have created unsafe street conditions for children in cities around the world. Every day more than 500 children die in road crashes globally. The physic...al and mental health benefits of walking and biking are challenged by speeding traffic and unsafe pedestrian rights of way. Streets that are designed with the needs of children and their caregivers in mind have been shown to improve road safety, health, and quality of life. Building on the success of their Global Street Design Guide, the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO)-Global Designing Cities Initiative (GDCI) Streets for Kids program has developed child-focused design guidance to inspire leaders, inform practitioners, and empower communities around the world to consider their city from the eyes of a child. The guidance in Designing Streets for Kids captures international best practices, strategies, programs, and policies that cities around the world have used to design streets and public spaces that are safe and appealing to children from their earliest days. The guidance also highlights tactics for engaging children in the design process, an often-overlooked approach that can dramatically transform how streets are designed and used. From addressing the lack of mobility options to noise and air pollution, this graphics-rich guide will help to design better streets, and thereby better cities, for kids of all ages and their caregivers. Designing Streets for Kids provides both inspiration and application. By focusing speci?cally on children and caregivers, this book fills a significant void in physical urban design guidance.

            A forward looking book on sustainable design that describes problems and then, by providing a different way to conceptualise design and development, leads on to examples of regenerative solutions. Its aim is to move the discussion away from doing less, but still detracting from o...ur ecological capital, to positively contributing and adding to this capital. This book offers a hopeful response to the often frightening changes and challenges we face; arguing that we can actively create a positive and abundant future through mindful, contributive engagement that is rooted in a living systems based worldview. Concepts and practices such as Regenerative Development, Biophilic Design, Biomimicry, Permaculture and Positive Development are explored through interviews and case studies from the built environment to try and answer questions such as: 'How can projects focus on creating a positive ecological footprint and contribute to community?'; How can we as practitioners restore and enrich the relationships in our projects?; and 'How does design focus hope and create a positive legacy?'
