Camia Young (OHU) on Development and Communities

18 January 2019

A great evening hearing from Camia Young of OHU explaining her crowd-funded development project in Lyttleton, followed by some lively discussion.

We look forward to bringing you updates on the project as it progresses, as well as news on other OHU projects as they unfold. The long-term vision for OHU is for the OHU Charitable Trust to build enough capital to be able to self-fund community projects - avoiding the high profit requirements from financial institutions.

Camia was introduced by A+W NZ Secretary Sukshma Paranjpe.

Camia Young is the Founding Partner of OHU (Office for Holistic Urbanism), and will be presenting on their current Christchurch project Colette's Corner in Auckland on Sunday 17 February 2019.

If you are heading to Auckland for the NZIA in:situ conference, make sure you catch A+W NZ member Camia Young before you leave.

Camia Young moved to Christchurch in 2011 to be part of creating a 21st Century city. She is the Founding Partner of OHU and the instigator behind Collett’s Corner, a bold approach to property development that involved co-conceiving, co-designing and co-owning property. Come along to hear how she has challenged the typical financial structures of construction and development, and how such alternatives can be beneficial for communities, urban design and architecture.
