Julia and Erick will build on the interesting discussion initiated in the first Urban Lunch with Jens von Bergmann and Nathanael Lauster. Influenced by the work from Alain Bertaud’s Order without Design, They will be sharing insights from their research, they will attempt to weave a more complex narrative around affordability and densification: touching upon their relationship to urban pattern, building type, and social equity. The session is sure to provoke many interesting questions.

Alain Bertaud will also be presenting when he visits Vancouver on the evening of September 20th at the Vancouver Playhouse. Alain Bertaud was the chief Urban Planner of the World Bank and is the author of the internationally acclaimed Order Without Design. Alain began his career working for Le Corbusier, designing Chandigarh the capital of Punjab. He has been called the Harrison Ford of Urban Planning because of the exotic places he has worked.
