The May installment in this exceptional and informative series features a presentation by the author of "Global City Blues: The Impact of Globalism on the Livability of our Cities." Mr. Daniel Solomon is a world-renowned San Francisco-based architect and urbanist with thirty-five years of professional and academic experience focused on residential architecture and urban design. He is also the co-founder of the Congress for The New Urbanism, an urban design and planning movement that the New York Times called "the most important phenomenon to emerge in American architecture in the post-Cold War era."
The Forum takes place at the Little Fox Theater, 2209 Broadway, in downtown Redwood City . Doors open at 5:30 pm and the cost is $10 per person, payable at the door. An optional no-host dinner with the presenter and other participants will be held following the Forum for those wishing to continue the discussion.
On the first Wednesday of each month, the Forum at Redwood City will bring nationally-known speakers and presenters to Downtown Redwood City for in-depth dialogues on city design issues. The Forum provides an on-going venue for professional-level education and dialogue about urban design issues, today's hottest urban design topics, and most cutting-edge techniques.
By bringing together local government officials from throughout the Bay Area, as well as planners, urban designers, architects, and other professionals in the urban design field, these forums are intended to educate and foster discussion on new and emerging concepts in city planning and design. Interested members of the public are welcome to attend. The Forum at Redwood City is co-sponsored by the Association of Bay Area Governments.
