Imagine Austin Speaker Series: Victor Dover

  • City Hall 301 West 2nd Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States

Please join us for an upcoming Imagine Austin Speaker Series morning event featuring na-tionally recognized and award winning urban designer and city planner, Victor Dover. Victor will discuss how we can we elevate Austin by creating streets that are not just transporta-tion corridors, but also beautiful and memora-ble places. He’ll also share inspiring images and examples from the great cities and boule-vards of history and showcase the specific de-sign elements that add up to great, inviting streets and cities. Victor will also challenge everyone involved in the design of multimodal “complete streets” to move beyond signage, striping and bollards to thoughtfully create handsome streets that generate civic pride.
