Citymakers and Practical Urbanism

Evening Forum

How is a city made? The new book, Citymakers: The Culture and Craft of Practical Urbanism, argues that it’s not just the top-down planners, architects and elected officials and bottom-up community groups that shape our cities, but the large and unheralded group in between. Join us as we expand the definition of urban practice with practitioners and commentators of this new idea of citymaking that link these trends in practice to the global challenges we're facing.
