Just Enough for the City

Friday, October 15th, 2010

The Syracuse University School of Architecture (SoA) celebrated city life this week at the Formerly Urban (Projecting Rust Belt Futures) Symposium. Speakers from Syracuse, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Toronto and Paris discussed depopulation, prairie urbanism, redefining district identities, and new structures to activate urban life.

SoA Dean Mark Robbins said architects should harness the drive of commerce for the betterment of our cities and create incentives to do better (design, planning) work.
