RSVP for "Shaping Cities to Nourish Social Equity"
Join Women's Voices at The Heights (8001 Dale Ave., 63117) on May 9, 2019.
Doors open at 6:30 PM; event begins at 7:00 PM.

Speaker: Patty Heyda, Associate Professor of Urban Design and Architecture, Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts, Washington University

In her work in American cities, Heyda poses the question, How do you restore community? Do you honor local context, or do you bulldoze everything and try to start over? Heyda says many forces, especially in our increasingly privatized economy, underlie the formal decisions that architects and planners have to make.

Heyda, who recently coauthored the book "Rebuilding the American City: Design and Strategy for the 21st Century Urban Core," will describe the deterioration and rebuilding of McRee Town and the Botanical Heights neighborhoods in south St. Louis and discuss ways to respect traditional scale and character in neighborhoods. She will also explain how neighborhoods become gentrified and the importance of understanding the social, economic, and political priorities that shape our cities and communities.
