Lecture: Professor William Morrish, University of Virginia
Venue: RTKL, Baltimore, MD
Focusing on the future of America's aging metropolitan first-ring suburbs and modest urban working-class neighborhoods, Morrish presented current work and research that sought ways to align design principles from green building, landscape ecology, and non-profit community organizational work with planning rules and production processes to transform existing small neighborhoods to meet society’s changing social/economic demographics and sustainability opportunities.
Presented by the Center for Art and Visual Culture, the Neighborhood Design Center, and Young Designer’s Forum.
