The Forum for Urban Design will hold its Spring Conference 2009 on May 13 and 14 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The Forum for Urban Design will “host two panels comprised of leading figures from North America to discuss different visions for the 21st century urban park. Discussions will range from the ways in which innovative and creative designs are redefining the park and city of the 21st century to questions about development strategy, financing, operations and management.” The landscape architecture panel, alone, may be reason enough to attend:
