Urban Design NOW: A Changing World in 2800 Seconds

Join the Urban Design Committee for our 2018 inaugural event with 2800 seconds of fast-paced presentations on the latest in design, planning, advocacy, and transportation in Boston and abroad. 10 speakers will present five-minute micro-lectures addressing critical urban design issues, challenges and solutions. Catch up on the latest evolutions in resiliency, autonomous vehicles, bicycling, urban gondolas, industrial urbanism, waterfront planning, public art, landscape and more. There will be food, drink, lively conversation, and a preview of what’s to come on the UD Committee agenda for this year.
