CNU XV In Philadelphia: New Urbanism And The Old City, May 17-20, 2007

Congress for the New Urbanism

JOIN THE WORLD'S EXPERTS in urban design and development in Philadelphia for the premier annual event dedicated to great urbanism. The Congress is an ideal venue for networking, collaboration, and education among design and development professionals, public officials, and others
committed to building and renewing places of enduring character, value and diversity.

CNU XV brings a movement with a 15-year record of progress to one of America's great redeveloping cities to focus on the formidable challenges of renewing older places. It comes at a time when New Urbanism is at the center of some of the most innovative work happening in coding reform, transportation design, post-disaster renewal, and green development -- all of which will receive ample attention at the Congress.

Top speakers include Witold Rybczynski, Denise Scott Brown, Peter Calthorpe, Robert A.M. Stern, Rep. Barney Frank, Dena Belzer, Andrés Duany, Inga Saffron, and others. Transportation innovators such as Allan Jacobs, Elizabeth Macdonald, Norman Garrick, and high-ranking state DOT officials will discuss design advances that are making roads work for neighborhoods again -- and even leading to the replacement of freeways with thriving urban fabric.

Join them in Philadelphia for an event that will leave a lasting mark on growth and development in the mid-Atlantic and beyond.
