Professor Douglas Kelbaugh
Architecture and Urbanism in Northern Europe
October 29, 2008 12:00 PM
A+A Auditorium (Rm 2104)
Art + Architecture Building
Professor Douglas Kelbaugh, who has just stepped down as dean of Taubman College, will join the SMART distinguished speakers roster and present his thoughts and images on a half dozen new green neighborhoods and towns that he just visited in Germany, Holland, Denmark, and Sweden. These projects are seamlessly walkable, bike-friendly, and transit-oriented. They are full of energy efficient buildings that are contemporary in architectural language and well integrated into their urban landscapes. He will also include some recent architectural projects of note in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stuttgart, and Berlin.
This is Professor Kelbaugh's final presentation before he leaves for Dubai to work as the executive director of building and urban design at Limitless, an international real estate development corporation headquartered in Dubai, UAE.
