Curse of the Livable City: Panel Discussion
Saturday, April 25, 2:00 – 3:30pm

Join us for a discussion on the changing cityscape, led by Facilitator Leslie Van Duzer, Professor and Director at the School of Architecture & Landscape Architecture, UBC. Richmond, as part of Metro Vancouver, is consistently ranked as one of North America’s most livable cities. What is it that makes a city livable and vibrant, and does Richmond really fall into this category? Cities are greatly shaped by development, immigration, and economics. How has Richmond changed over the years, and what urban transformations are happening now? How do these changes compare to what is happening in other cities around the world?

Panelists: Greg Girard, Photographer; Bing Thom, Principal, Bing Thom Architects; Glenn Deer, Assistant Professor of English & Associate Editor of Canadian Literature, Dept. of English, UBC; Rufina Wu, Architect AIBC
