Duany Plater-Zyberk partner Galina Tahchieva on sprawl repair and downtown redevelopment

Galina Tachieva is a partner and director of town planning at Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company (DPZ) in Miami, Fla. She is an expert on how to successfully implement urban development in a range of environments, from downtowns to suburban retrofits and resorts. With more than 15 years experience in design and implementation around the world, she shares with her audiences proven strategies for success. Tachieva has led and managed scores of DPZ projects nationally and internationally. She speaks internationally on how to re-imagine suburban development, the New Urbanism, affordable urbanism, sprawl repair and downtown redevelopment. She shares with audiences case studies and new towns in Europe. Her most recent book, The Sprawl Repair Manual, offers comprehensive guidance for transforming fragmented, isolated and car-dependent development into 'complete communities'. Polemical as well as practical, the manual is designed to equip readers - from professional planners, designers, and developers to regulators and concerned citizens - with strategies drawn from two decades of successful repair projects. This event is being hosted by AIA Cleveland's Committee on the Environment (COTE)
