The RAIC and the CNV present: A Public Dialogue with Leading Canadian Urban Designers on Best High Street Designs

About this Event

Built City Speakers SeriesWalkability + Vibrancy + Affordability

The Built City Speaker Series provides a public + professional forum for dialogue and problem solving around walkable, vibrant + affordable city building in one of the most livable regions in Canada. The City of Vancouver, the award winning livability leader for MetroVancouver since the 1970’s, avoided the fate of other car dependent North American cities by building on local environmental values. Vancouver had created public capacity in pedestrian oriented urban design and planning issues through participatory planning- intensively engaging neighbours over a couple of generations- polishing a unique, amazing, sustainable city building culture which has influenced the rest of the region.

However, with the advancing effects of climate change and the rapid transformative impacts of social media, e-retail and other technologies on the social fabric of cities, we have to re-think and future proof MetroVancouver’s livability. The Built City Speaker Series asks the hard questions from the public + professionals on these “hot topics” and explores social resiliency in the time of climate change through social connectedness, aka, pedestrian oriented architectural + urban design. These “third spaces” or public living rooms in the public realm provide a stage where neighbours can build community. A “sense of belonging” and equity will be vital for residents in continuing to support civil society vibrancy, rule of law and most importantly, to buy-into climate change initiatives. Architecture + urban design have a profound role.
