One need only look out the window of any urban high rise to see the changes a city brings to the landscape surrounding it.  At night, lights dot the hills, drowning out the stars.  Forests are cleared, sometimes to be replaced by parks.  Water flows differently, flood patterns change, even the sounds you hear are different.  While these changes have been lamented by many, they are exciting and promising for others.  How does a city transform its surroundings? Which of these changes are unique to certain cities, and which do they have in common? Ultimately, what do these changes mean for communities inside and outside of cities?

Participating panelists: Chris Jones (Boora Architects); Ken Yocom (University of Washington); Nate Stoll (Lewis & Clark College)
