On October 17, the KPF Principal spoke about the firm’s approach to district architecture and how to leverage challenges into opportunities for creativity.
In line with the conference them of “Humanizing High Density,” Forth presented “Creative Solutions to Complex Problems – Our Mission to Make the World’s Cities More Livable Through Architecture.” He recounted KPF’s process for planning Hudson Yards, Covent Garden, and Downtown West, to name a few large-scale transformations around the world. In the time it takes to design and develop these projects, huge technological advancements take place, changing the way the public interacts with their environments.

Forth provided insight into how the team approached these projects, developing creative solutions to best utilize the sites and fit the needs of users.
