August 26, 2015 2 Comments
The Committee for Perth, the City of Fremantle and the University of Notre Dame invite you to attend a free Future Freo public forum with special guest Chuck Wolfe author of Urbanism Without Effort.
This 2 hour information session will showcase:
- Key findings from the Committee for Perth’s FACTBase Fremantle bulletins to date by Professor Matthew Tonts, The University of Western Australia
- The Committee for Perth’s analysis of community perceptions versus reality for the Fremantle region by CEO, Marion Fulker
- Key learnings from the Mayor’s recent study tour
- Chuck Wolfe’s research into urbanism without effort
Chuck Wolfe is a Seattle dwelling attorney focused on environmental and land use law. He assists in the successful redevelopment of infill locations and applies the use of sustainable techniques and innovative regulatory tools. His book Urbanism Without Effort offers an alternative approach to understanding cities and emphasises the importance of urban history and the organic city.
In order to have successful urbanism Chuck believes that the oversubscribed focus on placemaking, planning and population specifics must be replaced with an understanding of those elements that have authentically evolved over a city’s history. It is only when this has been achieved that solutions can be prescribed for cities, based on context gained through personal observation.
Following the presentations there will be an opportunity for a Q&A followed by networking and refreshments.
