Andrés Duany presentation on Charleston

Last week I attended a presentation by Andrés Duany, Andrés Duanya well known urbanist and architect.  Andrés and his team were hired to assess the City’s Board of Architectural Review (or B.A.R.) and offer suggestions for possible improvements.  The presentation did offer suggestions for the B.A.R., but delved into countless other areas including architecture, zoning, society, public safety, and education.

A colleague and fellow member of the Charleston AIA Board of Directors, Steve Ramos, wrote a pragmatic and relatively unbiased summary on his blog.  If you have an interest in the architecture of Charleston, I would encourage you to take a few minutes to read his post.
