On Wednesday, December 6, Gehl Institute Executive Director Shin-pei Tsay will participate as a panelist in “Mixed-up Use: Towards More Diverse Real Estate,” a program by URBAN-X.

From the event description:

“The urban mix has become mixed-up as retailers fear extinction at the hands of Amazon, hotels are being redesigned to feel like living rooms — or are living rooms courtesy of AirBnB — while knowledge workers are setting up shop in coworking spaces, restaurants, and public places — anywhere but the office. What does it mean for cities when old paradigms such as the office tower, department store, factory, and park fall by the wayside or blur together? What are the opportunities and challenges when pop-ups proliferate because no one can meet the landlords’ asking price? When cafes prove more appealing than cubicles, and parks are more than the sum of their playgrounds?”
