Andres Duany lectures on Agricultural Urbanism: Retooling Cities for the 21st Century

The course of 21st-century urbanism will be defined in large part by food. Our connections to it, our relationships with growers and providers, and the manner in which we integrate its system elements into the projects and neighbourhoods we build. New models are needed for viable (and desirable) forms of agriculture and food activities across a wide range of spaces, putting the focus squarely on design.

Sustainability is the rallying cry. Urbanism is the operating system. Participate in an evening of musings and ideas on the subject from Andres Duany, founder of Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company and one of urban planning’s most influential provocateurs.

This event takes place on Friday, June 17, 2011 at 7:30pm at the Glenbow Museum Theatre, located at 130 9th Avenue SE in Calgary. Admission is free.
