Mike Lydon is the co-author of Tactical Urbanism: Short-term Action for Long-term Change. He will be the keynote speaker at The Great Asian Street Symposium (GASS) 2016. Lydon is an internationally recognized planner, writer, and advocate for livable cities. Lydon is Principal of The Street Plans Collaborative, an international award-winning planning, design, and research-advocacy firm based in Miami, New York City, and San Francisco.

GASS was initiated in 2001 at the Department of Architecture, School of Design and Environment, National University
of Singapore (NUS), in response to the long-standing lack of truly Asian perspectives in the literature and research on Asian cities. GASS aimed
to establish an Asian-rooted center of excellence to foster exchange and communication of ideas and studies within this field.

Over the past 15 years, GASS has successfully shared and integrated cutting-edge debates and discussions on many problems and challenges confronting
Asian cities, such as traffic congestion, air pollution, social segregation, environmental degradation, and slum proliferation. On this basis, the GASS community
has also created a significant knowledge base with exemplary policies and design practices that effectively addressed the above-mentioned issues and played an important role as a catalyst for constructive and creative thinking about Asian cities in the 21st century.

Webinar: Urban Acupuncture: Celebrating the Work and Vision of Jaime Lerner

In more than forty years of work in cities around the globe, Jaime Lerner has been the driving force behind a host of innovative large-scale urban projects, from the pioneering Bus Rapid Transit system to parks designed to catch runoff and reduce flooding. However, many of Lerner’s contributions show us that changes to a community don’t need to be large-scale and expensive to have a transformative impact—in fact, one block, park, or a single person can have an outsized effect on life in the surrounding city. In his celebrated book, Urban Acupuncture, Lerner celebrates these “pinpricks” of urbanism—projects, people, and initiatives from around the world that ripple through their communities to uplift city life.

On Wednesday, June 29, join a diverse panel of urbanists and community change-makers to see how Lerner’s work and vision continue to affect positive change in cities. Panelists include Mike Lydon, Principle at The Street Plans Collaborative and co-author of Tactical Urbanism; Erin Barnes, co-founder and executive director of ioby; and Stephen Goldsmith, director of The Center for the Living City. The webinar will be moderated by The Overhead Wire’s Jeffrey Wood.
