The Carleton Urban Research Lab will be hosting the Summer Cities Symposium 2018, titled Working Waterfronts // Freshwater Fictions, at the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism on July 13-14.
The event will focus on issues of urban waterfront redevelopment, and is organized around the themes of environment, equity, and infrastructure. The idea of “fictions” is meant to include the variety of stories and visualizations we create to understand and to communicate ideas for these evolving sites and places.
Symposium speakers will be joining from cities on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence, and a group of students and faculty from Bangalore will be traveling to Ottawa to participate. The Symposium includes a workshop on Saturday, open to all students, which will build from a Friday afternoon tour of the area from LeBreton to the Ruisseau de la Brasserie in Gatineau. Speakers from the NCC, the Gatineau Planning Dept, and First Nations communities will discuss the past and future of the Capital region’s waterfronts.
The event is free and open to the public and we encourage you to register at our event website, https://c-url.ca/summercities/
We’re looking forward to seeing you in Ottawa!
