7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Main Library
Second Floor - Veterans Room

Event Details

Meet architect, planner and author Douglas Farr discuss his ideas from his new book, "Sustainable Nation: Urban Design Patterns for the Future." His first book, "Sustainable Urbanism: Urban Design with Nature" helped shift the focus of urban sustainability from the stand-alone building to the high-performance neighborhood. Given the urgency of the many challenges that society now faces, "Sustainable Nation" hopes to accomplish and even more dramatic shift to focus on how long change takes and the many ways to drive change faster than ever before. The book suggests that society can overcome our major challenges and decarbonization in four generations: the lifetime of a child born today.  The Book Table will have books for sale and signing.
