Carson Looney to Speak at Seaside Prize Event

Neighborhood Challenges for a Re-Urbanizing Nation” is the theme for this year’s Seaside Prize Housing Symposium being held this weekend from February 20-22. The four-part symposia is led by 2015 Seaside Prize winners Todd Zimmerman and Laurie Volk, champions of New Urbanism.

Looney Ricks Kiss along with other nationally recognized firms with a strong portfolio modeling New Urbanism have been invited to present on various housing topics. J. Carson Looney, founding principal in charge of residential architecture at LRK, will be presenting in a panel to discuss “21st Century Housing for 21st Century Households.” This session will pose the following questions:

What should we be building? What types are missing from our builders’ repertoire? Housing and unit types that match changing market preferences, development economics, and urban contexts. Is authenticity important? Does style matter?

Panel discussion led by Todd Zimmerman.

Presenters: Walter Chatham, Walter F. Chatham, Architect; Andres Duany, Principal, Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company; Alex Gorlin, Alexander Gorlin Architects; Carson Looney, Looney Ricks Kiss; Dhiru Thadani, Architect + Urbanist
