The Future of the Built Environment: Engaging Youth
Project Manager, Urban Design Associates
Location: 1000 University Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607 (Gleason Works)
Ashleigh Walton serves as an architect, urban designer, and project manager of one of Urban Design Associates’ design teams. She travels extensively on charrette with a mission to craft livable, traditional urban places and responsive architecture. As a former assistant to the Town Architect in Beachtown, Galveston, she honed the skill of design review which she uses often as a consultant for historic and riverfront architecture design review committees, in addition to design review in communities across the country. She is an active member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU), the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA), the New Urban Guild, and sits on the board of Preservation Pittsburgh. She finds joy in mentoring students who have the aspiration of becoming architects and designers.
This presentation is part of the 14th annual Reshaping Rochester Series presented by the Community Design Center Rochester (CDCR), which is focusing on “Our City, Ourselves: Connecting People and Places,” and how the way we shape our space can be a valuable tool for bringing people together in the public realm.
Speakers have all driven successful efforts that have improved their communities and built a strong sense of belonging. They will discuss ideas that can be readily transferred to Rochester.
The lecture is free to attend courtesy of the Rochester Area Community Foundation. Suggested donation of $10.
