AIA Urban Design Committee: Green Streets + Complete Streets = Living Streets

AIA/Los Angeles Urban Design Committee
Wednesday, NOVEMBER 10, 7PM
Green Streets/ Great Streets- one in a series
Green Streets + Complete Streets = Living Streets
Location: AIA/LA Offices Wiltern Building 3780 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 800
Space is limited!! RSVP to will@aialosangeles.org
There is a great deal of discussion regarding Green Streets, and Complete
Streets. As part of our Green Streets/Great Streets series, we have
gathered some of the local experts on designing and implementing livable
streets so we can focus on some basic concepts and implementation tools for
making great streets. The issues of Green Streets and Complete streets are
often looked at as separate issues, however they cannot be separated. As
our panelists have already passionately stated, it’s imperative that we
look at the broad concept of Livable or Living Streets and what we should
do to advocate and implement them in our cities.
Please join us for a lively discussion.
Panelists:
Emily Gabel-Luddy, AICP, (retired) Chief Urban Designer. Urban Design
Studio, City of LA Planning Department
Deborah Murphy, Principal Deborah Murphy Urban Design + Planning
Patricia L. Smith, Principal, Landscape Architect, Urban Designer
Calvin Abe, Principal, Ahbe Landscape Architects
