Featured 202 of the Day: John Nolen’s Lessons for New Urbanism and Beyond
Looking for a tour/202 combo to attend on Wednesday?
Earmark John Nolen's Grand Vision for Madison tour on Wednesday morning at 10:15 am with local Madison historian David Mollenhoff and UW-Madison's Alan Fish. See Nolen's lasting influence and vision for Madison in the flesh.
Then, follow-up the tour with the following 202 session from DPZ associate Tom Low:
John Nolen, renowned Town Planner and Landscape Architect, used practical, instructive applications responding to the challenges of the early twentieth century while addressing future needs. Today, we are reaping the results of past planning efforts and facing our own challenges – many of which are remarkably similar to Nolen’s era.
This 202 workshop will:
• Examine Nolen’s original drawings, sketches, and papers including built work, then showcase Nolen’s work and methods of making communities.
• Compare Nolen’s city planning techniques with current projects, and instruct participants on how to successfully apply these techniques today.
• Explore Nolen’s and NU’s design techniques and their influence on the emerging trends in landscape urbanism, and green infrastructure design.
This workshop includes participation by Nolen scholars, leading new urbanists, and experts in landscape and green infrastructure.
