Learn how planners and designers can enhance the well being of urban families in the public realm.
The aim of the symposium is to stimulate discussion about how planners and designers can meet the challenge of enhancing the wellbeing of urban families in North Carolina, across the nation, and the world. As cities grow and develop, opportunities to support family life in a healthy public realm should multiply. European design innovations such as “home zones” together with community participation processes and design guidelines will serve as triggers for discussions about how cities can grow in harmony with the needs of their citizens across the life span.
The Growing IN Place Symposium is part of the Annual Urban Design Forum presented by the College of Design, NC State University.
