To anyone interested in the first Students for New Urbanism Conference:
This post is to notify you about the first Students for New Urbanism Congress
to be held this October at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana.
SNU-ND and the School of Architecture are excited to host this three-day event,
which will feature several keynote speakers, round-table discussions between
professionals, teachers, and students, and chances to interact with
representatives of various firms involved in the field. We will focus on
discussing the past history and present state of New Urbanism, and how today’s
students can influence and change the future.
The conference will commence with a soiree on Friday night, October 5, 2007.
That evening, and through Saturday, there will be several round-table
