El­e­ment Game Chang­ers

Element - - Upfront - Watch Tony’s pre­sen­ta­tion at el­e­ment­magazine.co.nz

Last month El­e­ment launched Gamer Chang­ers, a fas­ci­nat­ing se­ries of speed talks from the most in­ter­est­ing peo­ple in the mag­a­zine’s or­bit. From this month we are putting them on the El­e­ment web­site, kick­ing off with the inim­itable Tony Watkins. For more than forty years Tony Watkins has been con­cerned about the way in which a healthy built en­vi­ron­ment can con­trib­ute both to the health of the planet and to our own health. Tony is an ar­chi­tect, an ur­ban de­signer and a plan­ner. Much of his work has been at an in­ter­na­tional level, but he has lec­tured for many years at the Univer­sity of Auck­land. Nei­ther of his two homes – one at Karaka Bay, an­other in North­land, have road ac­cess, the lat­ter be­ing an hour’s walk from the near­est road. His book “The Hu­man House” sets out his phi­los­o­phy.
