Liveability or Gentrification

Democratic Neighborhood Revitalization in Copenhagen presented by Bianca Hermansen

Date: Tuesday, November 29 6:30 pm
Time: 6:30 PM
Location: UW Architecure Hall 147

Does design for livable cities inevitably lead to gentrification and displacement?  

Come hear about Copenhagen's last decade of work to revitalize its neighborhoods while respecting existing neighborhood residents, culture and identity. Bianca Hermansen will show examples from the last decade of work in Copenhagen that demonstrate deliberate strategies to spatially democratize renewal projects.
