Description

Join BuroHappold and Woods Bagot on Monday, April 15th in San Francisco, when we will bring together a panel of expert practitioners working at the cutting edge of reimagined public infrastructure. The group will discuss the catalysts for stranded asset projects, transformational design approaches and lessons for future adaptive reuse initiatives. As 21st century technologies transform our economies and lifestyles ever more rapidly, urban infrastructure must evolve to adapt to our changing circumstances. We have seen railways, bridges, highways, ports, piers, and man-made waterways become underutilized and disinvested. However, the stranded assets of today have immense potential to spark improvements to our cities and urban areas. Cities are places where people live together and share in the benefits of large public infrastructure. Just as the Works Progress Administration of the post-Depression era and the Green New Deal of today position infrastructure systems as generators of new jobs and improved quality of life, planning and design practitioners are reimagining stranded assets for the enhancement of communities across the globe. The design and re-design of our infrastructure demonstrates our commitment to live together in equitable, sustainable, and resilient cities.
Speakers to be finalized shortly.
