Join us in Carmel, Indiana for a very special annual gathering of the International Making Cities Livable conference, the preeminent conference on urban quality of life since 1985. This year we'll be focusing especially on suburban retrofit, and the tools and strategies needed to improve livability, equity, opportunity, and quality of life for all, especially in suburban areas where so many now live. We'll also look at neighborhood health, green cities, affordable housing, active mobility, gentrification, displacement and homelessness, and the international cooperation needed to implement the New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. We'll be hosted in the beautiful city of Carmel, Indiana, a showcase of suburban retrofit. We'll examine the tools and strategies used successfully there, and share lessons and effective tools from other places too.

This year we will also have a special celebration of the life and legacy of Suzanne Lennard, friend and ally to many, and co-founder of the IMCL, who passed away in September. The IMCL will continue (as the Suzanne C. and Henry L. Lennard Institute for Livable Cities, Inc.) with its focus on human-centered urbanism, and on sharing tools and strategies for achieving livability and quality of life.

IMCL was founded on the premise that the physical design of the city, especially its public spaces and general architectural character, is enormously important to the daily well-being of all citizens. Urban design plays an equally important role as a critical nurturing influence, especially for children and the elderly.

The 2020 IMCL Urban Design Competition is intended to highlight the physical design/redesign of elements of the city that demonstrate successful solutions to common urban problems.

The Competition is not simply a beauty contest, although a truly Livable City is our highest art form, but a search for exceptionally well-designed projects that embody a natural fitness to purpose; projects that take advantage of and celebrate the unique and diverse opportunities of urban life; projects that reflect, respect and enhance their place, culture and citizenry; projects that are socially and environmentally responsible, and promise to be beloved by future generations as well.
