Author’s Forum on Urbanism is a monthly series featuring authors in an hour-long, interactive discussion of recent publications on urbanism. The series, part of CNU’s On the Park Bench webinar program, takes a deep dive into each author’s insights through the lens of New Urbanism. The focus will be on one or two ideas that are embodied in the book, which advance the understanding of precedents and design strategies to repair and make sustainable urbanism. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage with the authors during the session.

Author's Forum on Urbanism presents “Architecture & the City” with author Michael Dennis and interviewer Dan Solomon.

Michael Dennis is an architect and founder of Michael Dennis & Associates in Boston, Massachusetts. The firm’s award winning work in architecture, campus planning, and urban design has been published nationally and internationally. Michael is the author of Court & Garden: From the French Hôtel to the City of Modern Architecture (Cambridge: MIT Press, 1986). He is Professor of Architecture Emeritus at MIT, where he was the Director of the post-professional Architecture and Urbanism Program and taught Urban Design and Urban Design Theory. Previously, he taught at Cornell, Kentucky, Princeton, Rice, Harvard, and Columbia universities. He has been the Thomas Jefferson Professor of Architecture at the University of Virginia, the Eero Saarinen Professor of Architecture at Yale University, and the Charles Moore Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan. In 2011 he was awarded the CNU Athena Medal for contributions to urbanism.

This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
