      DEADLINE - edra/Places Awards Nominations

      Deadline: February 7, 2006

      The edra/Places awards are unique in the ever-expanding universe of award
      programs. Their primary concern is for good places and how people inhabit
      them. They invite participation from a range of design and research
      disciplines, recognizing projects whose significance extends beyond any one
      profession or field. And they emphasize a link between research and
      practice, demonstrating how a careful understanding of human interaction
      with place can inspire design.

      ARCHITECURE LECTURE - Branner Fellows

      Date: February 15, 7:00 pm
      Location: 112 Wurster Hall

      Jeffrey Carney, Geography of the Neighborhood; Kristi M. Dykema,
      RE-Habitation: Interpretations of Growth; Laura K. Mezoff, Over Our Heads;

      Reception to follow. Lecture being held in conjunction with an exhibit of
      the work of the Branner Fellows on display from February 15 to February 24

      EXHIBITION - Housing Becomes Home: Photographs with Residents of New York
      City Housing Developments

      Date: February 16 through March 18
      Location: Elevator Gallery, First Floor Lobby, Wurster Hall

      This exhibition of photographic work by environmental
      psychologist/photographer Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani deals with building a
      sense of "home" in three New York City affordable housing developments that
      were designed in exploratory and even revolutionary ways. Because units of
      housing are in essence homes for families, this exhibition takes an interior
      look at what architecture can allow and support; this photographic work
      makes accessible the crucial process of making space for oneself within
      designed spaces and housing markets.

      An opening reception and discussion will be held on February 16 from 5:00 ­
      7:00 pm.


      ROUNDTABLE - Complexity, Governance, and Water Policy: The Case of
      California’s CALFED Program, David E. Booher, FAICP, IURD Visiting Scholar
      and Senior Policy Advisor, Center for Collaborative Policy, California State
      University, Sacramento

      Date: February 23, 2:00 pm
      Location: 316 Wurster Hall

      In the early 1990s, state and federal officials and major stakeholders in
      California came to the conclusion that existing governance institutions for
      water were not working adequately. The CALFED Program emerged out of this
      realization. Since then CALFED has evolved as an important experiment with a
      new model for governance based on collaboration, complexity and networks.
      David Booher was involved in early efforts to launch CALFED and since then
      has been collaborating with DCRP Professor Judith Innes and the Center for
      Collaborative Policy in research to understand what this experiment might
      mean for governance in post structural society.

      At this IURD Visiting Scholars Roundtable, David will present the initial
      findings from this research and engage seminar participants in a discussion
      about what it all might mean for the future of governance in California. He
      will also bring in his experience from other similar experiments in
      governance in California. Questions about the IURD Visiting Scholars
      Roundtable series should be directed to Janet Dawson, jgdawson@...,
      or Karina Pallagst, pallagst@....

      dimensions of city regions, funded by the Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz
      Foundation. Tom Sieverts was appointed as UC Regent's Lecturer in 2005.  His
