Design for Evolving Downtowns: People. Place. Practice.

Friday, March 18, 2016 at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel

DesignForEvolvingDownTowns_LogoDowntowns are in a continual process of evolution in response to global changes—demographic swings, lifestyle trends, increased mobility, capital availability, resource scarcity, and other shifting factors. By understanding these factors and their impact on the built environment, designers play a lead role in shaping the evolution of downtowns. The 2016 Urban Design Conference explored the role of people, places, and models of practice in designing for our ever-changing urban cores, with particular focus on the public realm, housing, development innovation, social justice, and transportation.
