Lecture title: Love as the Prime Force in the Economy of Cities – Equities of the Heart for Urban Competition

This talk by Larry Beasley will look at the city not as a situation of functionalities and efficiencies, or even as the nexus of sustainability – but rather as a facilitator of preferred human experience that underpins those more obvious outcomes. From this perspective urban competition is not so much about growth and jobs strategies. It is about the arts, architecture, culture and heritage as factors of placemaking that touch a spiritual side, offer complete community life and convert sustainable urban solutions into delightful urban offerings. Vancouver, other Canadian cities and international exemplars will be showcased.

Larry Beasley is the retired co-director of planning for the City of Vancouver. He is the founding principal of Beasley and Associates, an international planning and urban design consultancy and a distinguished practice professor of planning at the University of British Columbia. Larry Beasley now teaches and advises on urbanism around the world. More bio details...

Larry Beasley's talk is part of the final class of Canadian Cities Through Art and Design – a Canada 150 celebratory course offering by Simon Fraser University.

Co-hosted by the SFU Urban Studies Program, Department of History and The City Program, with the sponsorship of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, as part of its Canada 150 program.
