Missed Andrés Duany Friday night? Repeat peformance tonight at 7:30

Jun 18, 2011

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.

    This is the moment we’ve all been planning towards.

    Beginning Wednesday, June 15, 2011, citizens, landowners, and City staff sat down with an international consulting team to translate years worth of lessons learned into a plan for healthy growth along Mission Road. Just as important, they used this week-long planning workshop as a test run for how Calgary's residents, business people, and government might better go about charting the future of our neighbourhoods together.

    That’s why we’ve described this project as: Neighbours on a mission. In reality, we’re all neighbours. And we have to work together to get where we want to go. Read more here.
