CALL FOR IDEAS! Celebrating the 100th Birthday of Jane Jacobs

CALL FOR IDEAS! Celebrating the 100th Birthday of Jane Jacobs
In 2016, we want to celebrate the 100th birthday of one of the most important urban thinkers of our time, someone who has influenced generations of designers and planners: the great Jane Jacobs.

I want to organise a one-day colloquium on Jane Jacob’s legacy at TU Deft. I am now collecting ideas about the format, speakers and contributors. If you have suggestions, please do write to me at with the title “Jane Jacobs 100″ in the subject field.

Hope to see you there!
