Event Details

Vancouver's public spaces are where public life happens. These plazas, squares, streets, laneways, pathways, and waterfront are where we connect with the city and with each other. It's where community is created.

 

How do we improve the delivery of extraordinary public spaces in Vancouver? In what way can we approach the study of public life? How do we ensure inclusive placemaking? 

 

With the City of Vancouver’s recent release of the Gehl Report on Public Space and Public in Downtown Vancouver and the upcoming Downtown Public Space Strategy (as part of Places for People Downtown) due in early 2020, the Urbanarium has invited a panel of urban planners and equity specialists to explore issues and opportunities around Vancouver’s public life including considerations for initiatives such as VIVA Vancouver and the soon to be launched Vancouver Plan.

 

Doors Open: 6:15pm

Moderator: Derek Lee, PWL Partnership 

 

Speakers: 

Jay Pitter, author and placemaker whose practice mitigates growing divides in urban centres. 

John Bela, Gehl Studio

Kelty McKinnon, Director / Principal, PFS Studio

Sponsorship:

SFU Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Dean's Office, SFU Urban Studies, SFU Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program

Urbanarium

The world is becoming more and more urban, and cities more and more complex. Political, economic and environmental systems are undergoing radical shifts creating added uncertainty in planning for the future.

Urbanarium has been founded by a group of the most prominent urbanites in Vancouver, including architects, planners and other leading citizens who are passionate about city making.

Urbanarium believes in informing, educating and engaging the citizens of Metro Vancouver to help guide decision making to protect our future well being. Urbanarium is starting to reach out to the community to provide it with stimulating and easy to understand information about how our urban system works, what forces are acting on it, what alternative futures might happen and what we can do to affect those outcomes.

Our intention is to become respected as a platform for advanced urban conversation in Metro Vancouver and a place where people can get reliable information without political or ideological bias.

The Vancouver Urbanarium Society is a registered non profit society.

Urbanarium.
For smart cities.
