How can good design encourage openness and equity? How can we shape cities we want to live in? On Wednesday, April 22, EVDS is partnering with Stantec to welcome renowned Canadian architect Bruce Kuwabara to campus to explore these concepts for the next installment in the Design Matters lecture series.
Los Angeles has created a crisis of artificial scarcity; a burden for renters, a drain on economic growth, and an environmental disaster. The city has planned itself into a cage. “They think downzoning will stop growth,” says EVDS professor Greg Morrow. ”It won’t stop people from coming to LA. It makes the lives of those who do come that much worse.”
With two presentations and two awards, EVDS MPlan students made a memorable impression at this year’s Canadian Association of Planning Students (CAPS) Conference hosted by the University of Manitoba.
