Remarks by
Brent D. Ryan, Ph.D.

Massachusetts Intitute of Technology

Topic: "English Urban Design in Colonial America and Beyond: New Haven, Philadelphia, and Savannah". Our speaker, MIT urban design expert Brent D. Ryan, will give remarks exploring the design histories of three English colonial cities—New Haven (1638), Philadelphia (1682), and Savannah (1733). While their plans drew on established precedents and were alike in featuring rectilinear street grids, civic buildings, and open squares, each city’s configuration was also unique and exemplary. Professor Ryan will discuss how these three cities developed over time, trace their influence on subsequent urban planning, and show how today’s urbanists continue to draw from the creative ideas of their colonial English predecessors.

Lady and gentleman guests are welcome. For more information on the event, please write our event coordinator.
