Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Dr. David Gordon, Director and Professor, SURP, Queen’s University

A subway under downtown in 1915? A major freeway under Laurier Avenue? A hexagonal city grid? A hockey arena beyond the suburban fringe? Renowned capital planning historian and former Ottawa resident David Gordon provided us with an illustrated tour through the past of planning and design in Canada’s Capital. THe record Urban Forum crowd heard about which planning and urban design decisions went right and which ones were failures, as well as the missed opportunities and projects that thankfully were never built.
