Presentation The challenges facing cities such as Portland continues to grow complex, requiring a robust agenda of civic engagement. Anthony Flint, Fellow and Director of Public Affairs at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy (www.lincolninst.edu) and author of the recently published Modern Man: The Life of Le Corbusier, Architect of Tomorrow (www.anthonyflint.net), will lead a conversation about the dynamics of redevelopment. In addition to sharing the Lincoln Institute's work in inclusionary housing and community land trusts, financing tools and strategies such as the land value tax and value capture, fundamentals in building resilience, and scenario planning tools aimed at meaningful dialogue, he will discuss promoting awareness about city building based on his experience writing books on planning and architecture.
