Modern Urban Design Balances Infrastructural Needs With Public Opinion

Designing and planning an urban landscape is about more than just figuring out which building goes where, and John Ruble should know. His architectural firm has taken on projects around the world that he hopes will serve their host cities for years to come.

John Ruble will examine the pressing urban design issues facing cities today at the Kansas City Public Library's Plaza Branch in a lecture sponsored by UMKC's Department of Architecture, Urban Planning + Design. The event takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14. For more information and to RSVP, visit KCLibrary.com.
