NewSchool of Architecture & Design Hosts Experts on Design and Density to Address Projected Growth

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – SEPTEMBER 13, 2017 – NewSchool of Architecture & Design (NewSchool) is pleased to host a discussion this week about the future growth of San Diego.

The event, which is co-presented by the San Diego chapter of the California Planning Association and will be held at NewSchool, will address the issues San Diego faces as it grows, matures, and urbanizes. The city is expected to add 1 million more people by 2050 and housing—affordable and otherwise—is projected to be among the biggest challenges.

A hand-selected, uniquely-qualified panel of experts—Wendy L. Tinsley Becker, AICP, RPH; Frank Wolden, Principal, AVRP Skyport Studios; and Diego Velasco, AICP, LEED AP—will lead a discussion about design in the modern history of San Diego, the role it should play as San Diego confronts increased density in the future, and how it can address projected housing shortages.
