Live from CNU!

I had hoped to post live updates from CNU, but I became completely overwhelmed with information and a full schedule at the Congress. 

Until I can get some additional content online, here are a couple other places to read summaries of the world's foremost interdisciplinary gathering of urban visionaries.

Featured speakers were architects Christopher Alexander and Leon Krier, both of whom were presented with the Athena Medal for inspiring the founders of New Urbanism.  Here's a brief summary of Christopher Alexander's presentation.  Of course, "brief" and "Christopher Alexander" never belong in the same sentence.

Also present was Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, of the United Kingdom.  John is an "old friend" of New Urbanism.

CNU invites folks who criticize or differ from our movement, too.  We welcomed Marilyn Taylor from SOM and the Urban Land Institute, and the architecture critic from the Boston Globe.
