New Mobility and the Design of our Cities

On January 13, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) hosted a panel discussion on how new mobility services and technologies are impacting our cities and transportation design decision making.

Inequality exists when there are fundamental differences in access to opportunity, including transportation choices. With ever more modes of mobility popping up within our streets, sidewalks, and transit systems, how are the impacts of emerging technologies impacting communities? How are designers, the public health community, and planning agencies working together to address issues of transportation equity and integrating public health considerations in transportation design decision making?

Moderator: Wendy Miller, FASLA, President, American Society of Landscape Architects

Panelists: Nico Larco, AIA, Urbanism Next Center Director, Sustainable Cities Initiative Co-Director, and Professor at the University of Oregon

Ken Ray, ASLA, Deputy Director of Landscape Architecture, Toole Design

Sakina Khan, Deputy Director for Citywide Strategy and Analysis at the DC Office of Planning
