The sold out event in conjunction with The American Club of Lisbon, welcomed guests across architecture, design, RE, investment, as well as those eager to learn about a project that succeeded in delivering a public-private partnership that attracted academic institutions, corporates, engaging public realm, all underpinned by stellar placemaking.

Led by Drexel Professor Dana D’Angelo business undergraduate students looked at the current business climate and leadership strategies.
