Sustainable Futures | Feel & Function: Urban Transformations Panel


PANELS is the fifth series year of AIA RUDC conversations on the Future of Urban Design Practice and Education. This series brings together practitioners, educators, and theorists to reflect on the dynamics of population influences and speculate on its impact to contemporary urbanism and smart cities. 

Join the AIA Regional & Urban Design Committee for a series of relevant conversations at the intersection of livable cities connecting regions through lifestyle resilience. How we live, work, play and learn is changing to a drumbeat of increased connection & separation through evolving cultural awareness. Possibly at no other time in modern history has choice been more important than present day. Can cities thrive in turbulent times? Our panel will discuss the questions and opportunities of choice for our resilient cities and inclusive urban design challenges.

Hosted by Regional and Urban Design Committee (RUDC).
