What Makes Great Streets?

According to Allan Jacobs, the streets of a city define its liveability by revealing insights into the quality of urban life. This two-part event included a professional development workshop and a public lecture that led professionals from Ottawa and Toronto to explore ways to enhance the public function of a typical arterial road.

Allan Jacobs, Architect, Chair of the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California at Berkley and author of Great Streets shared his observations of streets from all over the world to help better understand the physical and social qualities required to create great urban streets.
