Media Advisory: Eric Kuhne Presentation on Building Great Cities
  
TORONTO, ONTARIO - Renowned architect and city-builder Eric R. Kuhne presents his pivotal speech “Marketplace of Ideas.” He advocates creating mixed-use centres of excellence, connected to the city’s soul by understanding its culture, architecture, geography, customs and history.

The Toronto Economic Development Corporation is co-hosting the event with the city’s Planning and Growth Management Committee.

In his presentation Kuhne makes a passionate appeal to contemporary society from his experience with cities across four continents. He analyzes our collective responsibility in redeeming the vitality of cities, and through examples of his projects worldwide presents his philosophy on city-building.

Eric Kuhne is a principal of CivicArts, an international design consultancy in London, England. It is dedicated to the reintegration of architecture, landscape and the civic arts. For more information see http://www.civicarts.com
