The 3rd Annual Fall Geodesign Forum at Philadelphia University examines enabling technology (especially 3D) which helps us to better understand, plan and design sustainable communities using geodesign methods and technologies. We can do a much better job of defining what we care about, and then creating designs that can meet those goals. This forum is about discovering what you can do to design a better future.
