Student, Vice-President of the Urban Planning Organization
The Noah Pylvainen speeches examine the dynamics of public space, how societies have come to devalue their public spaces and the importance of public spaces for an affluent society. Pylvainen believes that the concept of "community" has moved away from the offline realm and towards the online realm, ultimately shifting societies interactions with these community-oriented spaces.
Currently, Pylvainen is a senior at Eastern Michigan University studying towards a bachelor's degree in Urban and Regional Planning, as well as working on several research projects to be debuted at the Michigan Association of Planning Student Conference and Undergrad Symposium. As Vice-President of the 'Urban Planning Student Organization -- PLACE,' it is clear that Pylvainen possess a passionate love for public space and city-planning. Traditional public spaces are an essential ingredient to thriving cities, this sentiment is tirelessly reiterated throughout the Noah Pyvainen speeches.
