“CV4 will explore creative planning and design solutions that will enhance San Diego’s urban vitality and economic growth, and provide opportunities for systematic increase of density through thoughtful, credible and purposeful design,” says Margit Whitlock AIA, Context Vol. 4 Chairwoman and Vice President of the San Diego Architectural Foundation.
The event is taking place at Green Acre Campus Pointe in the UTC area on Tuesday, June 6th.
The CV4 program has two parts: the first, from 3-5 PM is a free, open-to-the-public event featuring information booths, student exhibits, films and guest speakers, all of which will discuss and explore new ideas in housing types, development, density, neighborhood building and urban place-making.
The second part, which runs from 5-9 PM, CV4 will host a reception and a panel discussion with distinguished experts from around the U.S. who will demonstrate how well-designed, denser neighborhoods can improve the quality of life for all San Diegans. “This event will also provide a forum at which interested parties – developers, designers, academics, planners, residents – can come together, engage in useful dialogue, and share success stories from other cities that could work in our neighborhoods,” says Whitlock.
