Event description

Description

Join Metropolis' Susan S. Szenasy and Skylab for a Think Tank discussion on The Pace of Vibrant Communities


As we navigate the intersections between built, natural, and virtual spaces, the pace of social interaction and connection also shifts. With these spatial modalities increasingly overlaid, the architect is prompted to consider new methods of place making, with a focus on community building. By working with nature in a regenerative way, old patterns mix with the new, and by blurring the lines between building and landscape, new spaces for social and digital interactions emerge. With recent projects serving as case studies, this panel will explore how spatial and social relationships at different scales could set a new pace for vibrant communities.
