How can Portland continue to provide new housing options for families as the city continues to grow and densify, and how can this be done in ways that are environmentally sustainable? The public is invited to attend presentations by two renowned authorities on child-friendly housing and sustainable community design, Clare Cooper Marcus and Cynthia Girling, who served as jurors for the Portland Courtyard Housing Design Competition.
Clare Cooper Marcus is co-author of "Housing as if People Mattered" and "People Places: Design Guidelines for Urban Open Spaces". Cynthia Girling is co-author of "Skinny Streets and Green Neighborhoods: Design for Environment and Community" and "Yard, Street, Park: The Design of Suburban Open Space".

Admission to this event is free.
