Charles Waldheim is a Canadian-American architect and urbanist. Waldheim’s research examines the relations between landscape, ecology, and contemporary urbanism. He is an author, editor, or co-editor of numerous books, including the soon to be published, Third Coast Atlas. Join us on October 6, 2016 at 5:30 PM. This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is requested.
Measuring over 10,000 miles, the Great Lakes coastline, known as the “third coast,” is longer than the Atlantic and Pacific coastlines of the United States combined. It is difficult to overstate the history and future of the region as both a contested and opportunistic site for urbanism. Envisaged as a comprehensive “atlas,” this publication comprises in-depth analysis of the landscapes, hydrology, infrastructure, urban form, and ecologies of the region, delivered through a series of analytical cartographies supported by scholarly and design research from internationally renowned scholars, photographers, and practitioners from the disciplines of architecture, landscape, geography, planning, and ecology.
Following Waldheim’s presentation, there will be a panel discussion with several contributors to the Third Coast Atlas, including:
- Sean Burkholder assistant professor of landscape and urban design at the University of Buffalo
- Maria Arquero de Alarcon and Jen Maigret, principals of Made-Studio and architecture faculty at the University of Michigan
- Terry Schwarz, director of Kent State’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative
Steve Litt, art and architecture critic at the Plain Dealer will moderate the discussion.
AICP|CM credits will be provided for this event, sponsored by APA Cleveland.
