CDD Forum: Density Atlas Panel with Tunney Lee

The MIT Dept of Urban Studies and Planning, City Design and Development group, is pleased to welcome Professor Emeritus Tunney Lee to present a panel discussion in subjunction with his new Density Atlas Exhibit, soon to be hung outside 10-485. Lunch will be served.

About the Panel:

“Density” is a blunt expression that misses the nuances of urban design and social elements that contribute to a neighborhood’s desirability. To help the discussion, the Density Atlas was developed as a resource to compare urban developments using a standard scale and measurement system. These measures allow planners, architects, developers, and students to understand the implications of population, building footprints, and urban design in residential densities across the world. The Atlas has more than 100 examples of what density can look like that will help inform decisions regarding our built environment.
