        • This will be the final post on WellUrban, and I'll just use it to thank you all for your support, and to announce that there will still be a place in the blogosphere for information, advocacy and debate about the Wellington built environment: a brand new blog called Eye of the Fish.

      • Inside the tent
        • 22 Jan 2008
        • WellUrban
        • Most of you will have noticed that I haven't been blogging with my usual frequency, and while some of that can be put down to the usual holiday break and humidity-induced torpor, there's another reason why: I've been winding down in preparation for the end of WellUrban, which will happen at the end of this week.

        • File under: street art, graffiti, flanerie, Wellington "Graffiti Alley" between the Left Bank and Ghuznee St may have just been edged out in the Wellingtonista Best Public Art awards, but it's still the most dynamic and democratic site of all.

      • Daiquiri roundup
        • 3 Dec 2007
        • WellUrban
        • File under: drink, nightlife, Wellington I managed to get through a reasonable selection of daiquiris last month, and though some places revealed their ignorance by initially saying things such as "we can't make one, because we don't have any fruit", in general I managed to get good results with a bit of coaxing.

        • WellUrban
        • File under: urbanism, planning, transport, Mt Cook, Wellington I've mentioned the "urban spine" concept many times before, and the expectation that much of Wellington's population growth will occur along a relatively compact corridor extending from Johnsonville via the CBD and hospital to the airport.
