Timothy Beatley Lecture

MFA CD Lecture: Timothy Beatley

Timothy Beatley visited the Collaborative Design program some weeks ago, and gave a public lecture in the PNCA Commons about Biophilic Cities, the topic of his most recent book. His visit was sponsored principally by the City of Portland—the Bureau of Environmental Services, and additionally, by the Intertwine Alliance.
PNCA’s Untitled Magazine recently posted his lecture so you can take a listen, even if you couldn’t be there the first time around.

In “Biophilic Cities: Integrating Nature into Urban Design and Planning,” Timothy Beatley argues that cities can and must be designed to permit daily contact with the natural world. He identifies a variety of means for doing this, from green walls and green rooftops to urban forests and sidewalk gardens.
