22-23 September 2016
The Toward 21st Century New Towns conference at Harvard University convened 30 scholars and practitioners working on a book about the international experience in new town development, operations, management, and the perceptions and quality-of-life of residents.
Additional events included a public panel on Thursday evening, a conversation with alumni and friends involved in real estate, and a pre-workshop dinner.
Rachel Keeton presented a lecture on contemporary African New Towns and contributed a paper on the same topic, co-authored by Michelle Provoost, of Crimson Architectural Historians. The resulting book, co-edited by Ann Forsyth and Richard Peiser (both of Harvard GSD) will be published by University of Pennsylvania Press in 2018.
