Hello world!

Welcome to my Web page.

After a career in architecture and planning on a range of residential, tourism, educational, commercial and health projects in France. England, Fiji and Australia, and the last 20 years working as a university based architect/planner, I am now in semi-retirement, rebuilding my house, and doing independent research into affordable sustainable housing, the makeover of suburbs and the future of cities. As a pre-baby boomer, I am also looking at the lack of planning for a generation of oldies with the numbers that will surely skew the economy in Australia and most Western countries.

I use this blog to publish early drafts of articles intended for professional publications, and to gain feedback on ideas and concepts. Please feel free to make comments.
