SPUR has launched a new ticketing system and we're asking you to register for each event that you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes that may occur and enable us to better tailor our programming to your interests.
Though at first glance the connection between environmental psychology and urban sociology may not be apparent, a deeper look into their relationship shows vast overlaps. Both are interdisciplinary fields that rely on a mélange of sciences in an attempt to solve the problems that exist in the environments around us. Join two experts in these fields, the authors of the books The Shaping of Us and The Help-Yourself City, as they discuss the nature of space and place and how looking at our cities with this dual lens can enable us to better understand our interactions with the built environment and our neighbors who live within it.
