- Dear Students,The presentation described below will take place during our winter break, but some of you may be interested in attending. It would probably be a perspective on sprawl unlike what we typically hear as planners in the Bay Area.Hilary
ROBERT BRUEGMANN | TUESDAY JANUARY 16
Professor of Art History, Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Illinois, Chicago; Author, Sprawl
THE HISTORY OF URBAN SPRAWL
Bruegmann turns conventional thinking about urban sprawl on its head, stating that it has always existed and attempts to curtail its growth have been ineffective, carrying consequences far worse than sprawl itself. With Bay Area residents no strangers to the phenomenon, Bruegmann provides critical insight into how sprawl has opened up opportunity by providing increased mobility, privacy and choice.
