Healthy Cities & Streets
With Kellen Krause
On December 6, 2019, the ICAA held the 2019 Health, Safety, and Welfare in Traditional Design Day. As part of the day's series of lectures, the ICAA hosted Kellen Krause, architect at Historical Concepts in New York, for a presentation exploring the impact of urban planning on the welfare of a city's residents. The course examined the role of "foreground" and "background" buildings, and how this intersection of public and private realms affects the outlook one has on their surroundings.
How does NYC convey its meaning through notable buildings as well as those down the street? Which associations encourage a better life, and which inhibit? Viewers will be exposed to a variety of traditional and contemporary buildings and urban patterns as the course illustrates both successful and ineffective conditions.
