Vancouverism: In Conversation with Larry Beasley

Monday, September 30, 2019 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Bram & Bluma Appel Salon, Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St., Toronto ON

Join ULI Toronto and the University of Toronto's School of Cities for an evening celebrating the launch of Vancouversim by Larry Beasley. Vancouverism is the remarkable story, told by a key insider, about Vancouver’s dramatic transformation from a typical mid-sized North American city into an inspiring world-class metropolis celebrated for its liveability, sustainability, and vibrancy. 

Following a presentation on his book, Larry will join Jennifer Keesmaat in conversation. Listen as these city builders reflect on their tenures as Chief Planners of two of Canada's major urban regions.

Larry Beasley is the Distinguished Practice Professor of Planning at the University of British Columbia and the founding principal of Beasley and Associates, an international planning and urban design consultancy. He sits on many boards, including TransLink, British Columbia’s integrated transportation agency; and the National Capital Commission in Ottawa. He is a registered professional planner in Canada and the retired co-chief planner for the City of Vancouver. He is also a member of the Order of Canada.

This is a free event, but registration is required.

Books will be available for purchase onsite.
