During his time as mayor of Curitiba, Brazil, Jaime Lerner transformed the city into a global model through selective, but trailblazing, projects in transportation and sustainability. His new book, Urban Acupuncture, explores how small, innovative urban projects can be the driving force of change in even the largest cities. Join him for a discussion on how pinpricks in our city’s fabric can build truly livable urbanism.

Co-presented by Island Press, ZERO1, Transform and Greenbelt Alliance.
