Yesterday, City Design & Development students were treated to a panel about the urban design profession. Thank you Thor Nelson, Senior Urban Designer for DC Office of Planning, and Yasmine Doumi (MURP ’16), Development Manager for Weller Development Company, for speaking with us!
It was fabulous to team up with Kim O’Connell to co-lead a tour about the vibrant heritage of the Vietnamese community in Clarendon and the Eden Center for the Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACPRH) National Conference.
Today, students had the exceptional opportunity to get a behind the scenes tour of DC’s exciting new project, The Wharf. Matt Steenhoek, Vice President of Development of PN Hoffman, answered questions about construction, design and placemaking. In addition, students had another space to analyze using the Gehl Public Life Tools.
