Metropolis and Mobile Life will focus on the ways in which our modes of moving in and through cities influences our attitudes toward them. The discussion will explore the relationships between physical mobility, social life, and economic opportunity. The goal is to expand and elevate the level of debate surrounding transit in Toronto beyond  light rail vs. subways, or whether or not to tear down or restore aging expressways.

Featured speakers:

Federico Parolotto, Senior Partner, Mobility in Chain
Tom Vanderbilt, Author, Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us)


Richard Sommer, Dean and Professor of Urbanism, Daniels Faculty

Presented by the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design.
