Library Book Talk: Elizabeth Macdonald
Environmental Design Library
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Elizabeth Macdonald, College of Environmental Design Professor of City & Regional Planning and Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning, will discuss her latest publication, Urban Waterfront Promenades, at the Environmental Design Library's book talk.
Macdonald will explore her 38 urban waterfront promenade case studies worldwide, as varied as Vancouver’s extensive network, classic promenades in Rio de Janeiro, Stockholm’s recently built Hammarby Sjöstad eco-district, and the Ma On Shan promenade in the Hong Kong New Territories. The research analyzes their physical form, social use, the circumstances under which they were built, the public policies that brought them into being, and the threats from sea level rise and the responses that have been made.
