Organized by the students in the "Transforming Legacy of Oil" 360°
Program at Bryn Mawr College in the Fall of 2012, this symposium invites
the larger audience to join the ongoing interdisciplinary conversation
around the issue of oil the related socioeconomic, architectural and
urban development questions, using Philadelphia as our laboratory.
The symposium brings together students, academics, planning
representatives, and industry professionals to talk about the future of
cities, like Philadelphia, as they deal with the transforming influence
of oil and other energy sources. We will have an opportunity to converse
with experts speaking from their professional perspectives about the
impact of oil, and have a hands-on experience of redesigning the city of
Philadelphia for a future moving on from the legacy of oil.
Participation is free, however registration is required and can be done online here.
