WALKING AND EATING BY DESIGN
Dr. Anne Vernez Moudon Professor of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Design and Planning and Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology and Civil and Environmental Engineering University of Washington, Seattle Director, Urban Form Lab (UFL)
7pm, Thursday March 13, Centre Space, Russell Building
Walking is a popular form of physical activity and people are more active if they can integrate walking into their daily activities. Living near grocery stores, restaurants and retail stores increases the amount of walking people do. Dr. Moudon will talk about how to identify and create neighborhoods that are walkable, safe, and enjoyable.
Dr. Moudon¹s published works include Built for Change: Neighborhood Architecture in San Francisco (MIT Press 1986), Public Streets for Public Use (Columbia University Press 1991), and Monitoring Land Supply with Geographic Information Systems (with M. Hubner, John Wiley & Sons, 2000). She also published several monographs, such as Master-Planned Communities: Shaping Exurbs in the 1990 (with B. Wiseman and K.J. Kim, distributed by the APA Bookstore, 1992) and Urban Design: Reshaping Our Cities (with W. Attoe, University of Washington, College of Architecture and Urban Planning, 1995).
