No Walls, No Barriers

Compact, infrastructure-rich cities are the most intelligent form of human settlement. They are the most powerful agents for social and environmental equity in an ideologically divided 21st Century America. Where we place our buildings, how we design them and move between them accounts for two thirds of our carbon emissions. At their best, cities erase barriers, providing equitable access to culture, information and mobility. They spur creativity and are a significant part of the equation in addressing climate change. Craig Hartman will discuss examples of his recent civic, commercial and cultural work that examines post-911 architectural possibilities in form and technology that respond to these opportunities, connecting urban engagement and high level environmental performance.

The cultural, economic and social demands of the public realm have expanded its function beyond gathering space.
