Continuing our series highlighting the three critical session tracks at CNU29.Design for Change, this episode of On the Park Bench will ask three New Urbanist thought leaders why we need to Design for (Physical) Change.
Shaped by both Policy and Society, the theme of physical change is focused on the output: the built environment. The design of places, buildings, and even cities is changing before our eyes. Sessions in this track at CNU29 will focus on the bricks, sticks, asphalt, concrete, landscape, and the design ideas that shape them all, and how they can align with the Charter. A variety of content will be available through sessions in the Physical Track, including those led by the three panelists, as well as the moderator on this webinar, who will each talk about the physical change they are seeking.
Nathan Norris, Founding Principal of the CityBuilding Partnership as well as President of the New Urban Guild, will talk about the changes we need to see in urban and architectural design outcomes; Allison Quinlan, Owner of FlintlockLab, will talk about the change needed to adapt the practice (and the practitioners!) of development; and Camille Cortes, Designer at DPZCoDesign as well as leading member of the PLACE Initiative, will talk about the 2021 PLACE Initiative Climate Summit, a part of the UN-Habitat Urban Thinkers Campus program happening as a shoulder event with the Congress. Moderated by Garlynn Woodsong, Managing Director at Woodsong Associates and also presenting at the Congress, this webinar will frame the opportunities that exist in designing for physical change and offer some insight into why you should register for CNU29.Design for Change.
This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
