Conversation was focused on sustainable urban infrastructures and how they interface with the pedestrian experience.  We asked:

How can the practice of urban design encourage and support sustainability and green infrastructures? How can existing infrastructures be transformed into greener technologies? What existing conditions restrict the implementation of green infrastructures? Should watershed and other infrastructural boundaries drive planning/zoning?  What impact do / should these systems have on the public realm?
