Repurposing existing assets to improve cities and communities.
Drawing on a decade of hands-on work, engagements, and global research, Scott Burnham will show participants how to unlock hidden potential and utilize extra abilities contained in existing urban assets to make cities more livable, resourceful, and resilient.
Based on keynote talks and workshops he has delivered to some of the world’s leading architecture and design centers, this will be the first time this presentation is being made available to the general public. During the webinar, participants will learn how to:
- Identify and discover the untapped potential of existing urban assets.
- Leverage new opportunities to improve life in the city.
- Transform the limited resources of the urban landscape into platforms of possibilities.
