The MFA in Collaborative Design welcomes Chris Nelson as part of the 2013-2014 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series to deliver a lecture entitled, “Future Livable Cities.”
Chris Nelson’s research and practice have shaped the fields of infrastructure finance, smart growth, land use planning, and metropolitan development patterns. Dr, Nelson’s latest book (of over 20) Reshaping Metropolitan America, is recognized as a landmark achievement by planners like Bruce Katz and Peter Calthorpe, who writes, “Finally we have a comprehensive view of how the American Dream is changing and why.” Nelson is Presidential Professor of City & Metropolitan Planning at the University of Utah where he is also Director of the Metropolitan Research Center. He will be joined by a panel of former Metro councilor Rex Burkholder and Tom Kelly of Neil Kelly Co.
