Archtoberfest – Urban Greenways Workshop to Redesign 14th Street
October 28, 2014 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm| $15
What do Indianapolis, Atlanta, and Houston have in common? They’ve each invested heavily in a network of urban trails, and seen a payoff in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Find out more about the Urban Trails/Greenways concept and the transformative potential that exists in San Diego. Then put on your urban designer hat and take part in a guided charrette to redesign East Village’s 14th Street led by MIG.
re:Streets is a multi-disciplinary collaboration focused on the planning, design and construction of streets as a method for improving our built environment. It pushes beyond the current standards to explore the future of streets and what America’s roadways would be like if they were designed for living, not just driving. Join us as we explore inclusive public realm components including:
- mobility and access,
- social gathering,
- events and programs,
- play and recreation,
- image and identity,
- urban agriculture,
- and green infrastructure.
Charrette products will be presented to Civic San Diego for implementation as demonstration projects.
Following the workshop, walk over to Panama 66 to unwind at one of our famous Planners’ Night Out social mixers.
