Designing for Community: Dog Parks and Public Space

published 1 month ago by UCTV

What makes a neighborhood into a community? With rising density in areas like San Diego’s East Village, good urban design is more essential than ever for creating vibrant, livable communities. Enjoy a lively discussion about design strategies for urban settings with a special focus on the dog park/dog run as a particularly effective “mixer” for both human and canine interaction. L.A.-based design and architecture guru Frances Anderton of KCRW FM’s DnA will guide the conversation with San Diego urban planning mavin Howard Blackson and New York Times best-selling author (and UC San Diego alumna) Alexandra Horowitz, an expert on canine cognition and the human-dog relationship.
