Remodel Canberra on its Chinese Twin City
The ACT Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher, is in China to promote trade and development. I suggest that Canberra might look to the Chinese city of Changchun (长春), which was modelled on Canberra's original plan. Canberra based architects have been involved in the development of Changchun and this might provide ideas for increasing the density of Canberra's town centres to make the city economically viable and make better public transport affordable.
