Workshop | Learning from Naturally Occurring Cultural Districts

05/25/2016, 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

What do those planning and managing cultural districts have to learn from the dynamics of naturally occurring districts? A lot…with respect to animation, scale, mixed-use and the relationship between production and consumption. This workshop provided a context to explore those lessons and how to apply them.
