Post-Oil City Workshops Held at the University of the District of Columbia

Posted: February 25, 2014

How will the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy affect the process of urban planning and the city? How can we envision the post-oil city of the future? What does such a city look like? These were some of the questions explored in “Post-Oil City: The History of the City’s Future,” an international planning and landscape architecture exhibition presented by the College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES) of the University of the District of Columbia and the Goethe-Institut Washington.
