"We need deboxing - less box ... alsodegridding. Without people's geographic participations we'd be only engineering and realty. WHOLISTIC LAND-USE ENHANCES GEOGRAPHIC CHARACTER; whereas the old colonial urban stamp suffocates."

What's all about?
The coordination of town amenity, facility, form, character, identity, sustainability for commerce, public activity and hometown enjoyment: It is about uniting town planners, civil engineers, landscape architects, public artists, government programs, community & commercial activism, traffic, land & constructed heritage, government, neighbourhoods, urban centre commerce - all with professional discipline, including sustainability and ongoing program pragmatics for local government and community.
In 1997 John was consulted as an Coordinator & Urban Architect as part of the Bicheno Townscape Project - one of three he undertook on the Tasmanian East Coast for community organisations. See the video below in all it's VHS glory..
