Re:Denver – Infill, Refill and Everything In Between!

June 23, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Historic Denver and a panel of experts to explore what makes good infill, the forces that shape design, and the relationship between old and new buildings in our neighborhoods. As Denver grows and changes, new development and infill will shape Denver for decades to come. re:Denver hopes to discuss issues that will have a significant and lasting impact on who we are and how we will be remembered.

This is a free event, open to all. More info

Brad K. Evans
Known to many as the creator of the wildly-popular Denver Cruiser Ride, Evans has gained traction as local agitator – by launching a Facebook Group aptly named, DenverFUGLY. With the creation of this group, Evans unwittingly tapped into one of Denver’s hot button issues – which has sparked an exciting and lively conversation about the transformation of Denver’s urban neighborhoods and what is, and is not, FUGLY. The FB group has grown to nearly 2,000 members in a short period time, and has engaged (and enraged) a diverse audience from both pro-and anti-growth camps. Evans received a BFA (Painting & Sculpture) from the University of Arizona and frequently works with area developers as a real estate agent at DenverCORE, and is principal of his own design/marketing firm ConceptFIXER.com
