Presented in conjunction with Global Citizen: The Architecture of Moshe Safdie, Living Cities will examine how nature is driving today’s most innovative ideas in architecture and urbanism. In contrast to traditional urban parks, many new projects fuse landscape, infrastructure, and building to produce integrated responses that humanize heavily populated cities and potentially accommodate climate change. Moderator Donald Albrecht, guest curator of Global Citizen, will introduce this concept in relation to Safdie’s 50-year career.

He will be joined by a panel of contemporary architects, including National Academicians Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi, founders of Weiss/Manfredi; Chris Reed, founding Principal, STOSS; and Mary Margaret Jones, FASLA, FAAR, President/Senior Principal of Hargreaves Associates.

Please RSVP to facilitate our planning. Seating is first-come, first-served.
