Public Keynote Event
Friday February 23rd, 7:00-9:00pm
We are partnering with the National Capital Commission Urbanism Lab to kick off the Future Cities Forum with an evening of three keynote talks by science-fiction writer and futurist Madeline Ashby, urban designer Ken Greenberg, and professor Tracey Lauriault, a researcher who specializes in big data and the city.

This diverse group will share their speculations on future cities in the context of emerging and disruptive technologies. How will and can we adapt the key lessons of urban design of the twentieth century and not be seduced by the same techno-utopianism that shaped cities in the past? As we are transformed and extended into the network, how will a citizen be in public or private in our new data-driven city? Who will be the heroes and anti-heroes of the cities to come?

This event is open to the public – everyone is welcome!
