Our cities are faced with the imperative of radical structural change to respond to the challenges of climate change – rethinking transportation networks, infrastructure and flood protection, energy generation and water supply as well as the very nature of the buildings we live and work in. Through placemaking, how do we ensure that the resulting urban landscape is humanistic? …that it is socially vibrant, culturally and ecologically true to its context, and performative in its use of precious resources? Jim will examine the strategies on both ends of this spectrum – the broader structural changes that prepare our cities for new climate realities, and the placemaking strategies that ensure they are livable and soulful. Jim’s presentation will focus on projects from his US-based practice – mostly in northern California and then invite discussion on what best practices we can learn from each other.
