Tierney returned in time to attend the preview for the Chicago Architectural Bienielle and /Dialogues at EXPO. The previous week included speaking at the University of California Berkeley Center for New Media and University of San Francisco Urban Studies. Tierney also moderated a panel discussion at SPUR: San Francisco Planning and Urban Research, in addition to presenting her UIUC smart cities research. Panelists included Antwi Akom [SFSU, UCSF, Streetwyze app], among Ben Feldmann [Mia Leher Landscape + Planning], among others. We were pleased by the large turnout and a spirited action-oriented discussion followed. Many thanks to Ken Goldberg, Nicholas De Monchaux, Lara Wolfe, Noah Christman and everyone at SPUR!
