Rebuildable City Panel Discussion
On the evening of April 4, 2019, the City of Edmonton hosted a panel discussion with the 2019 Missing Middle Infill Design Competition jury members at City Hall on the concept of the “Rebuildable City” and what it means for our ever-changing city.
The “Rebuildable City” is a direction proposed for Edmonton’s City Plan and is about working with what we have today and continuously adapting and re-imagining our built environment to meet the needs of the future.
The panel explored questions such as:
- If ongoing change is the natural order of things, and this pace of change is intensifying, how can and how will cities plan for greater adaptability?
- As our cities grow, how will new and diverse populations be supported, accommodated and nurtured?
- As our landscapes and infrastructure evolve and age, how will we continue to develop and design efficiently, responsibly, resiliently, and even ― playfully?
