Since more than 100 people had to be turned away because of space limitations Friday night at Calgary’s Glenbow Museum, Andrés Duany is re-presenting his lecture on “Agrarian Urbanism” tonight (Saturday, June 18).
The event takes place in the ballroom at the Holiday Inn on Macleod Trail. It begins at 7:30 p.m.
Thanks largely to Duany, the argument for threading properly scaled farms and gardens throughout the full range of urban and sub-urban neighbourhood has become a hot topic in planning circles. His presentation tonight incorporates his latest thinking on economic and social trends that are making local food production not only an appealing amenity for redevelopment in cities but also a necessity for sustaining communities over time.
