The 2017 Lecture Series titled Bold Ideas for Dix Park and the City of Raleigh, will be jammed pack with lectures @noon and some @night.

The Raleigh Urban Design Center (UDC) and the Dix Park Conservancy invites you to join us.

A. Ghigo DiTommaso, Urban Designer, M.Arch, Ph.D.

Italian architect, urbanist, and educator, Ghigo DiTommaso has been focusing his research and practice on public space design for more than a decade. Trained at the Florence School of Architecture, Ghigo began his professional trajectory in Barcelona, where he lived and worked for several years before relocating to San Francisco to join the Rebar Art & Design Studio. As a member of Rebar, Ghigo spearheaded some of the group's most ambitious projects from conception through implementation. In 2013 he began teaching at the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design and in 2014 contributed to starting Gehl Studio, the American office of the Danish urban design consultancy founded by Jan Gehl. In this lecture, Ghigo will describe his approach to urban design through the lenses of the projects that have seen him active in Europe and across the Americas.

All events are free and open to the public. Registrations not required and no reservations are needed. Attendees are welcome to bring lunch or dinner to the talks.
