About the Lecture
The American Planning Association and the National Building Museum established an annual lecture to draw attention to critical issues in city and regional planning in the United States. The lecture, named for Pierre Charles L'Enfant, who created the plan for Washington, D.C., features leading figures in planning, architecture, urban design, governance, and other fields.
The goal of the lecture series is to enliven national dialogue about urban and regional growth, while challenging individuals to create communities of lasting value for the 21st century and beyond.
