CUDC Green Urbanism Series | Phil Enquist and The Great Lakes Century

enquist-comp3

Please join us for a workshop and public presentation with Phil Enquist, FAIA, Partner in Charge of Urban Design and Planning at Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill (SOM) to discuss the ways that local conditions, planning policies, and design decisions here in Cleveland can align with the vision of a Great Lakes Century.

The Great Lakes Century is pro-bono initiative of SOM’s City Design Practice that advances a 100-year vision for the watershed focused on environmental protection, smart growth, and economic revitalization. The region’s future prosperity requires a collaborative approach to development that transcends political boundaries. The Great Lakes Century encourages all of us to think boldly about our shared wealth in the world’s largest surface fresh water source. The vision calls for strategic planning principles to guide regional decision making for the next 100 years.

Designers can play an important role in activating meaningful dialogue and advocating for progressive policies towards realizing a shared regional vision for the future.

The workshop at the CUDC is free and lunch is included, but RSVPs are required. For more information or to RSVP for the workshop, contact cudc@kent.edu. The evening’s public presentation will be held at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and tickets are free, but must be ordered here.
