What differs between the urbanscape of the daylight and the urbanscape in the dark? What do our built environments say about the current state of our society and our economics? Nightwalking has been a pastime of many who wish to see deeper into the structure and form of our urban centers. It is an opportunity to move beyond the conformity and confines required of us in the daylight hours. Join us for a fascinating conversation with Nick Dunn about why we are really afraid of the dark and how nightwalking can give us a new perspective of the world.
