RAMSA Partner Gary Brewer will speak at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain on May 2, 2012. “Arcadia for Everyone: The Rise and Fall of the Garden Suburb” will cover significant examples of design responses to unplanned sprawl. Presenting European and American projects from Ebenezer Howard's Garden City to Seaside and Celebration, Florida, Gary will describe the impact that density, a mix of uses, pedestrian activity, codes, building quality, and other issues have on the experience of the modern town. He will conclude with a discussion of pattern book houses including examples from his own work.
