This past fall we started a Salon Series: monthly moderated dialogues with local leaders exploring the intersection of design, the built environment and social issues. The next two are focused on what we're terming "North Morph" - the proposed and potential transformations of Denver's northside, including the neighborhoods of Globeville, Elyria, Swansea, RiNo.
Salon No. 5 will be titled "NORTH MORPH" and will be an interactive dialogue about Globeville, Elyria-Swansea and River North (RiNo) neighborhoods. How are citizen architects, community leaders and residents helping to shape our fair city?
Panelists will include:
Deputy Manager, City and County of Denver
…on the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative
Architect and Vice President, United Community Action Network
…on social equity and the built environment
Former Globeville resident

Architecture for Humanity Denver (AfH) and Open Tech Forever (OTF) are demonstrating that it is possible to build an open source, compressed earth block (CEB) house that meets the Living Building Challenge 2.1 standard.
We invite you to join our international call to action. Enter the contest and help us design a CEB home that we will build in the Spring of 2014 on our 40 acre site in Denver, Colorado.
Join us for Salon No. 3, a discussion on the burying of the I-70 viaduct between Quebec and Wadsworth in Denver. Currently we have Susan Barnes-Gelt, John Prosser, and Dean Foreman invited to serve as a panel with more to be announced, along with David Scott acting as moderator. The debate is sure to be lively, and we're looking forward to a constructive conversation on urbanism, traffic, and communities.
If you're unfamiliar with the project, here's two articles from local media outlets on the subject. We hope to see you there!
