Focus on Sustainable Urbanism
Foresight Design Initiative and Farr Associates will be holding an intensive, education course in Chicago August 6-15, 2012 on Sustainable Urbanism. The course will explore a few CNU principles: livable community design, smart growth, sustainable infrastructure, and the public realm through field visits, lectures, readings, and hands-on studio projects with Doug Farr.
The program offers participants a rare opportunity to learn from leading practitioners, envision a public housing redevelopment project through the visionary Living Building Challenge tool, and understand how sustainable urbanism principles can be scaled to solve complex urban social and environmental problems.
