12/4 - Perfect City: Lessons, Challenges and Pitfalls of the World’s Greatest Cities (CM | 1.5)

November 15, 2019

Join the Smart Growth Network Dec. 4 at 12 p.m. CST, as Joe Berridge, author of Perfect City and a partner at Urban Strategies in Toronto, summarizes a career’s worth of experiences as an urban planner in many of the world’s greatest cities.

 

In his new book, Berridge focuses on the cities in which he has worked – big cities facing the challenges of modernity and rapid growth such as New York, London, Shanghai, Toronto and Sydney. His conclusions suggest the need for some re-balancing on the relative status accorded by planners to the advice provided by those conflicting demi-gods of urban thinking, Jane Jacobs and Robert Moses. And the necessity above all, to enjoy the richness and delight – and the food – of a great city. 

 

Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits.
