Civic Design: How to Build Cities for the Future

Date TBA

Art, culture, and city planning are no longer separate aspects of civic life. We are increasingly building art and emotion into the designs of our most impactful public spaces: our city halls, our parks, and our neighborhoods. How do we leverage technology to design these important public places for the future? And how do we spark the culture, connection, and conversation that is unique to geography and physical place? In this session, we’ll explore the ways in which we’re building cities for the future - and leveraging technology to design better, more connected public spaces.
