Density: Through Thick and Thin - Los Angeles

When: Thursday, March 30, 2017 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Where: Slocum Hall Auditorium

Description:

An interdisciplinary symposium to explore density in Los Angeles, and its urban future in face of rising challenges and identity politics. As we face pressures of global population explosion, measurable and alarming ecological stress and related urbanization, the symposia offer an arena to discuss the current and near future status of the fundamental quality of built environments. Join us as we focus on discourse occurring in LA and a larger discussion about the various modes of urban density and their relation to environmental, economic, social, cultural and political quality.


Panelists include Jamie Winders, professor and chair of geography and Stuart Rosenthal, professor of economics.


Sponsored by the Syracuse Architecture undergraduate program, Associate Professor Lawrence Davis, Chair; Curated by Associate Professor Elizabeth Kamell and Assistant Professor Tarek Rakha.
