Looking Forward: New Urbanism and the New World
We're featuring the live-stream of the CNU session on the future of the new urbanist movement, featuring visionary thought leaders like Andres Duany and Jennifer Hurley. Don't miss it!
As we enter CNU's third decade, economic, political, and environmental conditions pose serious challenges for the built and natural environment, as well as New Urbanist practice. Three of CNU's Founders will open this session with lectures addressing these challenges. Andres Duany will present the 21st century crises that call for New Urbanists to adapt, including slow development, the public process, suburban retrofit, agricultural urbanism, and the theology of metrics. Dan Solomon will discuss the tensions between new urbanism's roots in the nuanced complexity of the city and the reductive codifying of New Urbanist practice.
Following the opening lectures, we will tackle New Urbanism's future with open source small group discussions around the theme of "How can the New Urbanism help us meet the challenges of the New World?" These sessions will launch this year's Open Source Congress.
