COMPREHENSIVE DESIGN + SCIENCE: VISIONS FOR ST. LOUIS AND THE GREAT LAKES REGION - Ladue News: Art Happenings

Join The Buckminster Fuller Institute (www.bfi.org) as we examine the challenges and opportunities facing St. Louis and the Great Lakes region as it seeks resilient solutions to the effects of climate change.

This half-day program will explore three approaches at the intersection of art, architecture, design, and science that propose anticipatory strategies for critical urban challenges. First, we will revisit Fuller’s legendary collaboration with Washington University architect James Fitzgibbon – a project proposal for East St. Louis titled Old Man River City. Next we will step back to survey the entire Great Lakes watershed in the context of population growth, development, and climate change, and present a visionary solution for its stewardship. Finally, we will discuss contemporary comprehensive design solutions that present replicable models for the rapidly growing urban centers of America’s Midwest.

A reception will immediately follow this program.
