The Future of the Central Schuylkill Riverfronts
James Templeton and George Claflen will discuss DAG’s new collaborative planning process for both banks of the central Schuylkill River. Working with volunteers, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission and a specialized consultant, DAG’s goal is to create a set of guidelines and/or zoning overlay document that could be adopted by the City.
DAG’s process includes initial data collection and analysis of existing master plans, proposals and potentially developable riverfront sites. Later, working with the City and stakeholders, a charrette process is envisioned.
James and George will also present earlier work referencing development along the Chicago River. 
James is co-chair of DAG’s Waterfronts Task Force, along with Nando Micale, and George is DAG’s co-vice chair.
The Design Advocacy Group (DAG) serves as a public forum and advocate for design quality in the planning, architecture and physical development of Philadelphia.

Beyond Sustainability
Experience #DesignForHumans with Humanscale and Kershner Office Furniture during an evening with John Strassner, Humanscale Director of Workplace Strategies, who will be discussing "Beyond Sustainability."
As the environmental movement continues to thrive, it is no longer good enough to do less harm or use less resources from the environment. Now is the time for designers to work towards creating a net positive future. Companies on the cutting-edge of the environmental movement are no longer just measuring their carbon footprint, but are actively engaged with clients and partners in measuring their handprint. The handprint measures not what has been damaged, but what has been given back to communities, employees and the environment as a whole.
Please join us for cocktails and light fare in addition to a compelling discussion around sustainable operations, healthy material selection, wildlife preservation and our commitment to having a net positive effect on our global community.
CEU credits available for IDCEC, AIA, and HSW.
