Conservancy brings 'good urbanism' home

External News Details

Savannah prides itself on its city plan, a walkable, leafy grid that's served residents and visitors well since General James Oglethorpe mapped it out almost 300 years ago. The city is a fitting place, then, for "Good Urbanism 101," a seminar set for Saturday that will focus on urban design including an emphasis on walkability, alternative transportation, sustainability and the relationship between urban infrastructure and the urban experience. "What we're trying to do is educate people about how to design better cities," said Richard Dagenhart, professor of architecture and urban design at Georgia Tech and one of Saturday's three speakers. "By design I mean either architects, urban planners or interested citizens to be able to work with or understand what's being proposed in a neighborhood and make decisions that result in things being better." Dagenhart will be joined by colleagues David Green and Doug Allen at the seminar sponsored by the Georgia Conservancy.
