1900 SW 4th Avenue, Room 2500A
Join us for an evening learning about the most innovative approaches to street design from cities around the world. Come learn how streets can be places that support transportation and community interaction, play, sustainability and more as part of the re:Streets project.
re:Streets is a multi-disciplinary collaboration focused on the planning, design and construction of streets as a method for improving our built environment. It pushes beyond the current standards to explore the future of streets and what America’s roadways would be like if they were designed for living.
Daniel Iacofano and Mukul Malhotra, MIG principals and leads on the National Endowment for the Arts-funded re:Streets project will share inspiring ideas and lead a lively discussion on the future of streets.
This presentation will also be an opportunity to explore ideas for implementing the Portland Plan’s concept of a citywide greenway network that will weave nature into the city, link neighbor to neighbor, and better connect Portlanders to streams and rivers, schools, parks, natural areas, regional trails and neighborhood hubs.
