Back from a recent tour of major European cities in which he was armed with just a folding bike, David Baker will reflect on the different approaches to sustainable urbanism that he encountered. He will share ideas and images from the optimistic Towards Car-Free Cities conference in Istanbul, the sleek success of Paris's Velib' bicycle program, and the effects of London's congestion tax as well as the city's architecture festival, Open House London. David Baker FAIA has been practicing architecture for nearly 30 years, and in 1996 was selected as fellow of the American Institute of Architects. With a focus on sustainable affordable housing, his award-winning firm David Baker + Partners has come to be known for combining social concern with a signature design character. A progressive urban activist and bicyclist, he has also been a teacher, a union carpenter, and a philosophy major.
