On Monday, the 23rd of September at 12.30, Michael Neuman will give a lecture with the title ‘Images of place in urban and regional planning’ at the Hugo Priemuszaal, OTB. His position is that the plan matters because the images of place that are contained in plans not only guide the planning process and the development of territory; they also shape the entire institution of governance in which planning is situated. The role of the planners—to create the image of place—points to an important leadership quality, and to a key role for urban and regional planning.

Professor Michael Neuman from Faculty of the Built Environment, University of New South Wales, is the author of numerous articles, reports, and plans translated into eight languages. His books include ‘The Futures of the City Region’, ‘The Imaginative Institution’, ‘Building California´s Future’, and ‘Coordinating Growth and Environmental Management Through Consensus Building’. Dr. Neuman has been awarded Fulbright and Regents Fellowships, and best article awards in Town Planning Review, European Planning Studies and the Journal of the American Planning Association. His professional and scholarly work has won awards from the National Endowment of the Arts, the National Science Foundation, the American Institute of Architects, the American Planning Association, and the Spanish and Catalan governments. His research and teaching interests include sustainable regions and communities, network infrastructure, governance institutions, and planning theory and history.
