LunchUP: Marc Norman, "No Cities are Built Out: Clawing Back Urban Space"
In the 2015 article in the Journal of Urban History, “Getting Out of a Spot: Deployed Technologies and Revamped Codes for a Thriving Twenty-First-Century City,” Marc Norman explored the ways cities could reclaim public space and use technology to create opportunities in cities. He is expanding this research for a forthcoming book, Housing as Intervention: Architecture Towards Social Equity. Professor Norman will discuss the pitfalls and opportunities for planners with the rise of autonomous vehicles and policy and finance techniques for reclaiming the public realm.
These sessions are a response to requests from faculty and students to learn more about what’s going on in the field in an informal environment. We hope this can inspire emergent thoughts and connections that will inform our scholarship.
Lunch is included, please bring a drink.
