Designing Value–The Value of Design (Part II)

October 9, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Movements of industry, service, and residents cause substantial change to our cities, towns, and suburbs. The visual impact of the changed physical environment often negates the social characteristics that once uniquely identified a neighborhood or place. Urban design is often used to generate and substantiate citizen buy-in – the promise of a better quality of life, and a higher tax base, But who is the beneficiary of good urban design? Our panelists will discuss how design impacts community development. They will explain how their role in community development leads, and will partner-with the development community to reduce the negative effects of change and gentrification.

In this panel, speakers will discuss how design value is generated throughout the design process. They will provide insight on how their critical thinking process yields positive long-term growth.
