Portland is undergoing a lot of rapid changes. While our city honors the pioneers of "urban renewal" our city is also working to undo these same terrible urban design and planning mistakes. It's a confusing moment.
It's important in times like this to take a more critical, scientific, and holistic approach: How do these changes in the physical environment affect the biological, social, and emotional ecology of the city?
Gary Hustwit explores this question, visiting cities around the globe and talking with luminaries in the fields of urban design and urban planning.
We will be having a discussion following the screening, and a social hour between doors (6pm) and the start of screening.
Please bring a snack dish to share!
