Tackle three urban challenges at Infrastructures for Change workshop 6/3

If you're a design practitioner, planner, engineer, environmental scientist, ecologists, or policy maker, you'll want to attend Archeworks' semi-annual Infrastructures for Change symposium on Thursday, June 3, 2010, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Inspired by the 1909 Plan of Chicago, the symposium, jointly planned with MPC and Openlands, will focus on the design and planning of the next 100 years of Chicago, Lake Michigan, and the built urban environment within the Great Lakes Basin. 

Sessions will focus on three urban challenges facing Chicago and cities everywhere in the 21st Century: shrinking economies, health crises, and ecological security. Participants will discuss how to design cities that work better with natural systems to conserve energy and sustain diminishing natural resources.

Keynote speaker Cameron Davis, Senior Advisor to the Administrator at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will present on the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
The workshop will take place at the offices of Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), 233 S. Wacker Dr. (Willis Tower), Suite 800. Registration is $90. For more information about this event, please call Archeworks at (312) 867-7254. Register today!
