PARKING D.TALKS

September 13, 2018

PARKING IS A COMPLEX TOPIC, BUT IT’S SOMETHING we ponder... often. We think of parking as a “quantity” in relation to a place. But what urban and design factors influence our desire for parking and how? Join us as we take a second look at parking: how we store, and where, and why. We’re curious to understand why we’ve become so attached to parking, and to peek into the future of what parking might look like as transportation technologies evolve over time.

MODERATOR:
Aaron Betsky
School of Architecture at Taliesin

PANELISTS:
Alkarim Devani - RNDSQR
Reachel Knight - Calgary Parking Authority
Judy MacDougall -Kasian
Ali McMillan - Bridgeland-Riverside Community Association

DOORS OPEN: 6:00 pm
PROGRAM BEGINS: 6:30 pm
