Turning Urban Symposium @ UVA

I was very excited to see that my alma mater, the School of Architecture at the University of Virginia, will be hosting a symposium this weekend about innovation in megacities. I hope all of the urbanist in Charlottesville enjoy this event!

Turning Urban: Innovation in Megacities, A Symposium at the University of Virginia School of Architect March 24-26 2011 in Charlottesville, Virginia

This symposium will pose the question of whether extremely large cities and urban regions are loci of innovation and adaptation, or whether the rapid pace of change overwhelms adaptive processes. Participants will compare examples from cities around the world in an effort to identify spatial armatures, temporal trajectories, and conditions that invite innovation.

Speakers and moderating UVA professors include: Junaid Ahmad, Karin Bradley, David Bragdon, Janice Perlman, Monica Porto, Brian Richter, Sarwar Jahan, Kala Vairavamoorthy and Timothy Beatley.
