2017 Australian Urban Design Awards Shortlist


PWA have been shortlisted for the 2017 Australian Urban Design Awards for large scale policies, programs and concepts.

Our entry examines Hyper Active Transport (HAT) as the underlying principle for the rapid decarbonisation of a world under threat by climate change. HAT is the integration of active (slow) modes of transport with hyper (fast) velocity platforms that are fit for purpose, based on size and distance required to travel. It allows for slow moving, highly liveable centres to be easily accessed by fast public transport. By reducing reliance on cars and planes it confronts the crisis facing our region.
