The VT School of Public and International Affairs is excited to announce our first interdisciplinary seminar series with the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center. Over the course of the spring term, we will host five sessions exploring intriguing and challenging aspects of the public realm in the National Capital Region.
Speakers will include Virginia Tech faculty from planning, public policy, landscape architecture and architecture along with noted practitioner experts. Each session will include a presentation, a discussion period and a small reception.
The seminars are free and open to the public, but for space planning purposes we would appreciate it if you would notify us of your attendance by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
