WHAT’S GOING ON:
purpose of the event is to create a dialog aimed at changing
public perception about new development in existing and new communities and to
humanize the problems that opposition to development causes.
program will emphasize homes rather than housing units, jobs rather than
companies, and community rather than separatism.
will explore creative planning and design solutions that will enhance San
Diego’s urban vitality and economic growth, and provide opportunities for
systematic increase of density through thoughtful, credible and purposeful
design.” says Margit Whitlock AIA, Context Vol. 4 Chairwoman and Vice President
of the San Diego Architectural Foundation
CV4 program has two parts. The first, from 3-5 p.m. is a free,
open-to-the-public event featuring information booths, student exhibits, films
and guest speakers, all of which will discuss and explore new ideas in housing
types, development, density, neighborhood building and urban place-making.
part II, which runs from 5-9 p.m., CV4 will host a reception and a panel
discussion with distinguished experts from around the U.S. who will demonstrate
how well-designed, denser neighborhoods can improve the quality of life for all
event will also provide a forum at which interested parties – developers,
designers, academics, planners, residents – can come together, engage in useful
dialogue, and share success stories from other cities that could work in our
neighborhoods,” says Whitlock.
