This lecture will open the conversation on the role of planning and design in vibrant cities like Rio. After his initial presentation, Fajardo will be joined by a faculty respondent for an interdisciplinary conversation about his remarks and to answer any audience questions. The faculty respondent is: Jesse M. Keenan, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Real Estate, Tulane School of Architecture.
