Panel Discussion: The Lively Cities

Friday, June 19, 2020 | 12:00 PM

Join us for the Lively Cities Webinar, an online panel discussion exploring how social distancing practices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic are challenging our conceptions of urbanity, leading us to question how we share public spaces as social infrastructure and what “future normality” will look like as restrictions lift and we regain a more active city life. The event will be livestreamed through the Sam Fox School Facebook page at 12 p.m. Central on June 19. A recording will also be made available.

The webinar marks the culmination of a weeklong workshop for Master of Urban Design students led by visiting professor Oliver Schulze, partner of the Copenhagen-based studio Schulze+Grassov, and Divided City visiting lecturer Mohammed Almahmood, head of research & innovation for Schulze+Grassov, as part of the summer 2020 MUD Global Urbanism Studio.

Tune in to the livestream at 12p Central on June 19>>
