Charlotte Urban Designer’s Roundtable

One of many winding, tree lined avenues in Charlotte's Myers Park neighborhood.

Charlotte Urban Designer's Roundtable Charlotte's planning and design have long been debated by planners and developers alike. What will Charlotte's future growth look like? Will we see more suburban sprawl? More urban living and residential skyscrapers? Or will there be a middle ground? Two area urban designers and planners join us on this edition of the show to talk about the concept of sustainable urbanism and the direction that Charlotte should take in terms of growth and design. Guests David Walters - Director of the UNC Charlotte School of Architecture's new Master of Urban Design graduate program and professor of Architecture at UNC Charlotte. Also an urban designer and town planner. Jose Gamez - Associate Professor of Architecture and Urban Design in the School of Architecture at the UNC Charlotte. Also Coordinator of the Design + Society Research Center at UNC Charlotte. Add and read comments
