Not a variation of my favorite new FOX series, but a lecture happening tomorrow at University of Oregon Department of Architecture in Portland at the White Stag.
UNTAPPED POTENTIAL FOR SUSTAINABLE SUBURBS
Lecture by Nico Larco, Asst. Professor, UO Department of Architecture
Noon, Wednesday January 20
White Stag Building, 70 NW Couch, Event Room
with Live Broadcast in Eugene, Lawrence Hall, Room 206
There is currently a shift occurring within the peripheries of our cities as social constructs and physical realities collide. The re-development of suburbia holds enormous promise both as an adaptation to changing sociology and in the potential for a more sustainable approach to existing forms of development. Multidisciplinary approaches to architecture and urban design will be critical in how this transformation takes shape.
Professor Larco’s research focuses on the nexus between architecture and urbanism. He is Co- Director of the Sustainable Cities Initiative (SCI), a cross-disciplinary organization that addresses sustainability from the region down to the building. SCI is engaging Architecture and Allied Arts faculty and students in research and design while providing service and technical assistance to a different city each year.
