Matthew Lister: Places for People

How do we better engage and design with people in the 21st Century for vibrant public life? How can a design process be shaped with citizens, and create public spaces with people at the center of that process? Public life is the shared experience of the city created by people when they live their lives outside of their homes, workplaces and cars. It is the everyday life that unfolds in streets, plazas, parks, and spaces between buildings. Public life can be measured, and cities that do so can help develop a high quality of public life through changes in the public realm over time. Public life thrives when all people can enjoy being in public together, and is encouraged by quality public space that fosters social interaction.  Vibrant public life promotes civic agency, supports health and sustainability, builds social capital, and connects people to their local communities.  Join us as we welcome Matthew Lister for the next installment of CIVIQ: a speaker series honoring Robert Taylor.

Matthew is a creative urban place maker, real estate development strategist, and designer. As a Managing Director at Gehl in New York, he focuses on the intersection of real estate strategy and the design and activation of great public spaces. Often working at multiple scales with both private and public clients, he works to develop aspirational yet economically sustainable and implementable solutions. Matthew also brings an expertise in collaborative engagement with diverse communities in the urban change and development process.  Doors open at 5:30p, presentation begins at 6p..
