New Urbanism in Silicon Beach/Metropolitan LA

Join us for a panel discussion featuring local planning professionals who will discuss changing dynamics of land use and economic development in relation to the New Urbanism movement.

As part of the 2019 Bellarmine Forum, which clebrates the life of the mind in relation to LMU's mission and heritage, this event is tied to Associate Professor of Geography and Director of Urban Studies Pete Hoffman’s course, “Metropolitan Los Angeles.” This course acquaints students with the social, economic, environmental and spatial characteristics in the context of postmodern urbanization.

This year's Bellarmine Forum theme, "Los Angeles: A Place for the Future" connects our work at LMU to the City of Los Angeles and is woven into BCLA's fall course offerings and will be animated at events throughout the year.
