CNU 22 - The Guild in Buffalo

The New Urban Guild and friends will be well-represented at the Congress for the New Urbanism in Buffalo June 4-7. The Congress focuses on the Resilient Community, with the Lake Belt as a backdrop.

• Andrés Duany, long a friend and patron of the Guild, will be everywhere, as usual… especially in the Lean Room, which is dedicated to the activities of the Lean Initiative. Several Guild members work with this initiative, and the Guild’s Project:SmartDwelling is an excellent pattern for lean buildings.

• Bill Dennis will be instructing three Art Room sessions, and will be participating in the New Urbanism & China initiative lunch.

• Chris Ritter will be doing two Art Room sessions as well.

• Eric Moser also has an Art Room session.

• John Massengale can be found in four places: Challenge of the Street Design Manuals, the Street Design Plenary, an Art Room session on the Civic Art of Street Design, and the NextGen Street Design Book Run.

• Julia Sanford will be presenting SmartDwellings in the 202 session on Atypical Building Types.

• Kenny Craft is one of the presenters in the Next American Urbanism session.

• Marina Khoury is doing two sessions: a 202 session on SmartCode Calibration and A New Hope for Better Planning.

• Michael Mehaffy will be at the Sprawl Retrofit Initiative Lunch, and will be participating in sessions on Retrofitting Zombie Subdivisions and New Urbanism as an International Movement.

• Mike Watkins is the organizer of and is presenting in the 202 session on Atypical Building Types.

• Robert Orr is one of the presenters in the Atypical Building Types session, and is doing the session Scale Down & Design For People, With People.

• Steve Mouzon is yet another presenter in the 202 session on Atypical Building Types… it’s becoming obvious this will be a Guild-heavy event. He is also doing an Art Room session.

• Susan Henderson is doing two events: a 202 session on SmartCode Calibration and another session Assessing Buffalo’s New Form-Based Code.

• Tom Low is doing a Rainwater & Green Infrastructure Best Practice session, and one on Light Imprint Mixopoly.
