Online Workshop: Resourceful Design Innovation by Re-Imagining Existing Urban Assets

The international University of British Columbia (UBC) Centre for Cultural Planning and Development is offering a new session of an online professional development workshop: "Resourceful Design Innovation by Re-Imagining Existing Urban Assets," with Scott Burnham, Boston, MA.

In this workshop we look at the potential of reusing, repurposing, and re-imagining a wide variety of urban assets, including existing infrastructure, materials, buildings, structures, systems, and even utilizing the skill sets of municipal employees in new ways. The workshop progresses from smaller examples of repurposing of material and street structures to larger issues of how to re-imagine Main Streets / High Streets and areas of post-industrial cities. It combines practical case studies with analytical observations and hands-on examples from the instructor's own international projects that use existing urban materials, structures and systems in new ways to increase their functionality and to improve the daily lives of urban residents.

Instructor: Scott Burnham, urban strategist and design director, Boston, MA, USA

Standard Fee: $240

Three scheduled online sessions. Tue May 12, 19 & 26, 12:00noon-2:00pm PST

Registration closes April 28, 2015

This workshop can be taken individually for professional development, or applied to the UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning - an international professional learning program delivered 100% online.
