The last decade has seen an explosion in direct actions aimed at remaking our cities. Parklets and other small-scale tactical actions indicate a new energy coming from outside the traditional urban professions. At the same time, professionals have opened new territories by crossing traditional design boundaries. Join a panel of noted professionals, moderated by Christopher Roach and Mona El Khafif, in this expanded field of urbanism as they discuss bridging the gap between these two poles of design.

+ Raphael Garcia, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission
+ Brad Leibin, Public Architecture
+ Nancy Levinson, Design Observer
+ Mark Miller, MK Think
+ Eric Rodenbeck, Stamen Design
+ Michel St. Pierre, EHDD

This program is co-presented by SPUR and CCA's Urban Lab.
