Dense, well-planned urban development has a plethora of benefits, including reducing traffic congestion, reining in suburban sprawl, contributing to livable, walkable communities as well as controlling housing cost, supply and equitability.
By integrating features of sustainable urban design such as low-energy mass transit systems and considering the interaction between the built and natural environments, cities can begin to more effectively foster health, wealth, and happiness- while also mitigating their environmental impacts.
Led by Ted Shelton, FAIA, LEED AP, this presentation will introduce proven sustainable urban design principles and explore the benefits of dense, low-energy development to help plan and build the cities of tomorrow, today.
