Everybody’s a Designer – Urban Design and Trans-Disciplinary Thinking
Jess Zimbabwe, AIA, AICP | ULI Rose Center for Public Leadership
The complex relationships of built infrastructure, natural systems, and social systems can produce a stronger, more productive, more resilient, and more beautiful city. But the roles that city governments, developers, designers, and planners have assigned themselves create frequent roadblocks to cross-disciplinary collaboration. The work of constantly reaching out, including, analyzing, translating and re-translating among bodies of experts is resource-intensive. But if we want a more equitable practice, transdisciplinarity must become the norm.
This lecture is approved by AIA and APA for 1 credit hour LU/HSW. NCBOLA credit is currently pending.
