Lessons From Tubingen, Germany

Thursday June 27, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Last summer a delegation of architects, urban planners, and interested citizens visited Tubingen, Germany to learn about Architecture and Sustainable Urban Development, in a trip co-sponsored by Huron Valley AIA and the Tubingen-Ann Arbor Sister City Partnership.

Come see a presentation of trip highlights presented by some of the participants including: Janis Bobrin, Anne Cox, Celeste Novak and Grace Shackman. This event was originally scheduled for April, and had been postponed. Concepts noted included a well-defined and protected historic core complete with a pedestrian zone; sustainability requirements including green roofs and solar collection panels; and the adaptive reuse and infill housing of the building cooperatives. Side trips to Stuttgart and the Swabian Alps were also fun and instructive.
