2015 Geodesign Forum
The 2015 Geodesign Forum is Presented by Liberty Property Trust and Pennoni Associates Inc.
The 3rd Annual Fall Geodesign Forum at Philadelphia University will bring together design practitioners, educators, and students of the built environment who are interested not only in the SHIFT of Philadelphiaâ€™s changing skyline and urban landscape, but also the SHIFT in enabling technology (especially 3D) which helps us better understand, plan and design for, measure, and visualize changes to the landscape via geodesign. Geodesign is the application of GIS/geospatial technologies to enhance sustainable design and planning of the built environment.
This yearâ€™s Keynote Speaker will be Tom Fisher, Director of the Metropolitan Design Center and the Dayton Hudson Chair in Urban Design at the University of Minnesota.
