Mind the Gap

Mind the Gap

As a member of the the Regional and Urban Design Committee (RUDC) at the American Institute of Architects, David Gambe will host a symposium to discuss the future of urban design education and urban design practice. Many of the challenges we face today as architects transcend the scale of a building.  Issues of social equity, environmental degradation, resiliency, mobility and community need creative strategies and design solutions.  Both the academy and the profession have a role to play in providing peer, community-based and applied learning opportunities in the field of urban design. 

Urban design offers an opportunity for architects to both expand their practices and influence beyond the property line to the block, neighborhood, city and regional scale. How can a stronger bridge be built from academia to the profession?  What are we teaching and why?  This one-day symposium brings together leading educators in urban design programs across the country and the firms that are implementing plans for structured conversations around the intersection of urban design teaching and practice.

BSLA 2018 Conference

BSLA 2018 Conference

David Gamble will be speaking at the Boston Society of Landscape Architects Conference on March 26, 2018. The presentation discusses the rapidly evolving trends with landscape design practice. Challenges to the traditional design firm are coming from many directions. On the one hand, consolidation continues to take place with large corporate conglomerates actively seeking to acquire small and mid-size firms that specialize. At the same time, an entrepreneurial ethic has cultivated niche firms and virtual practices that can compete, in teams, on the global stage. Additional speakers include Christine Dunn (Sasaki Associates) and Cheri Ruane (Weston & Sampson).
