Keynote speaker Fred W. Clarke, FAIA will present California 2020 Connection - A World Class Transit Center in San Francisco.

The global community requires nations to collaborate their human imagination and technology without borders. This exchange of concepts and information produces resources and goods that are traded freely, nurturing businesses, economic growth, and ideas to thrive and expand under equal opportunities for all participants.

Innovative state-of-the-art transportation systems centralized with employment and housing centers create sustainable prototypes in fostering economic growth and reducing carbon footprints among our local and global communities. The theme 2020 CONNECTION represents a target date for the implementation of the California High Speed Rail vision.

2020 CONNECTION will see the San Francisco Bay Area have a world class intermodal transportation hub, known as the Transbay Center, with a centralized local and high-speed transportation connection throughout major urban centers in California. This urban complex, with an employment center and a housing community, will promote sustainable living. The Transbay Center will be the dynamic heartbeat for an emerging economic and social urban paradigm that other global cities will look towards as a successful example of centralized mass transit, employment center, and efficient urban dwellings.
