The National Capital Planning Commission has invited experts on building height from European capital cities to come to Washington for a forum about our height limit. I’m moderating a chat with two of them today.

Update: The archived video is now available here and embedded below.

John Worthington is a Principal at DEGW Architects and visiting professor at the University of Sheffield. He’s written several articles about the pros and cons of tall buildings in various cities.

Robert Tavernor is Emeritus Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at the London School of Economics, and was previously professor of architecture at Edinburgh and Bath. He has been involved in the planning for several key London development sites.

You can tweet questions using the hashtag #HeighteneDConversations.

Our chat leads into NCPC’s panel discussion tonight from 7-9 with these two gentlemen and a few others from elsewhere in Europe.—>
