AIA 2024 Regional and Urban Design Symposium

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Regional and Urban Design Knowledge Community (RUDC) is hosting the annual Regional Urban Design Symposium this fall in Indianapolis, Indiana. Over many years, these symposia invite designers, policymakers, and urbanists to provoke, critique, and ideate on the future of cities. 

Theme: Cities are Relationships

Cities are physical manifestations of civic relationships and systems, and urban spatial organization is evolving away from a single “downtown” or “central business district” into a collection of polycentric and diverse communities that cooperate – or compete – with one another to build more dynamic urban environments. Urban economies are pushing forward new approaches and investigations as transformational change is happening. What are the significant factors and behavioral constructs we must understand today to set future generations up for success and thrive in built environments? Are polycentric cities expanding or contracting figuratively and physically? 

Programme

The Regional & Urban Design Symposium is a two-day event that will delve into emerging trends, theories, and technologies shaping the future of regional and urban design across the country, and will expand on this ambition through various presentations and panel discussions on the following topics:

  • Building Healthy Relationships between Polycentric Cities through Connections and Mobility
  • Balancing Individuality and Collective Identity
  • Success Through Collaborative Resiliency and Sustainability
  • Equity Through Shared Revitalization and Growth
  • Future Technologies and Livable Cities
