Edmonton is building a city of design, by design. Everything is designed - the tools we use, the things we see and the places we live. Urban design is no different. Urban design is the art of arranging the physical environment and built form to support human activities in the public realm. Design is not a 'nice to have' but a 'need to have' and it affects everyone.
You are invited to Let's Talk Design the second event in the Great Ideas. Great City. speaker series featuring Ken Greenberg, author of Walking Home: The Life Lessons of a City Builder. His strategic, consensus-building approach has led to a renewed focus on urban design and has made him a recognized and respected voice among urbanists, planners, designers and the public. He is the former Director of Urban Design and Architecture for the City of Toronto and currently teaches at the University of Toronto and Ryerson University.
