William Kay and Nancy Proctor Turner Lecture

The Tulane School of Architecture is excited to welcome Washington Fajardo who will be presenting the annual William Kay and Nancy Proctor Turner Lecture titled Reshaping Rio on Monday, November 15, 2021 from 5:15-6:30pm CT

Fajardo is the Rio de Janeiro City Planning Director. After hosting the 2016 Olympics Summer Games, the city struggled to manage COVID-19 while, at the same time, organizing the ten-year revision task for a new master plan. 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 her remarks and to answer any audience questions. The faculty respondent is: 

  • Jesse Keenan, Associate Professor of Real Estate, Tulane School of Architecture

This lecture will be VIRTUAL. REGISTRATION for anyone outside of the TuSA community (students, faculty, staff) is required and ends on Monday, November 15 at 11:00am. All registrants will then receive a unique link to access the webinar via their email on Monday afternoon.
