Design Ph.D. Candidate Ozlem Demir presented at the EAAE-ARCC joint conference in Lisbon. The EAAE/ARCC International Conference, held with the support of the EAAE (European Association for Architectural Education) and of the ARCC (Architectural Research Centers Consortium), is a conference organized every other year, in collaboration with one of the member schools / universities of those associations, alternatively in North America or in Europe. The paper presented by Demir was co-authored with Dr. Jong Lee of the NC State College of Design Natural Learning Initiative (NLI), titled Neighborhood Design and Children’s Active Travel to/from School

The conference discussions focus on research experiences in the field of architecture and architectural education, providing a critical forum for the dissemination and engagement of current ideas from around the world. This year’s theme is Architectural Research Addressing Societal Changes. Topics and lectures focus on five subthemes including:
