SUN-A07 - Roadway Futures—Three Streets as Public Places for People

Sunday, October 22
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM


As a public resource representing as much as 80 percent of the outdoor space of the built environment, the road network is critical territory for landscape architects. Using three recent roadway projects as case studies, we will explore the political, design, and construction challenges of transforming roads into public places for people.

Learning Objectives:
