Event description
Join us for an evening of conversation with Steffen Lehmann as he presents A Manifesto: Regenerating Cities in the Age of Climate Change.

About this Event

The Design Conversation Series features designers and critics from the fields of urbanism, architecture, landscape architecture, industrial, graphic and exhibition design who have made a global impact through their work. 

We hope you will join us for an evening of presentation and conversation with Steffen Lehmann, Ph.D., AIA RIBA AoU, as he presents A Manifesto: Regenerating Cities in the Age of Climate Change.

Architects, landscape architects and planners must consider how to best return derelict, post-industrial urban blocks into vibrant, livable places. Re-integration of greenery through nature-based solutions plays a significant role in this practical manifesto by first restoring damaged ecosystems.

Steffen’s presentation will explore the complex process of transforming and regenerating existing cities and is based on the author’s recent book Urban Regeneration: A Manifesto (London, 2019), which presents ten regeneration principles illustrated through 13 cases in UK cities. Continuing the unfinished, yet seminal text Towards an Urban Renaissance (report by the Urban Task Force and Richard Rogers, 1999), the author’s research develops a framework for a 21st-century manifesto of principles for the regeneration of cities, focusing on the characteristics of ‘a ‘good place’—the European model of compact, resilient cities—and strategies of sustainable urbanism. These principles are designed to be translated and applied to other developed cities worldwide.

Dr. Steffen Lehmann, AIA RIBA AoU, is Director of the School of Architecture at UNLV in Las Vegas and Professor of Architecture. He is Co-Director of the Urban Futures Lab and editor of the sustainable design book series for Routledge. He holds a Ph.D. from TU-Berlin and an AA Diploma from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. Before joining UNLV, Steffen held the UNESCO Chair for Sustainable Urban Development for the Asia-Pacific Region. Over the last 16 years, he has held senior professorial positions in several universities across Europe, Asia and America, including as tenured full Professor of Research and Innovation at the University of Portsmouth (UK), and the University of South Australia. Steffen became a licensed architect in Berlin in 1993 and has a deep understanding of architectural practice.
