Our program tomorrow TUESDAY APRIL 22; 1:00PM is an uplifting look at all things. Yes, everyfrackingthing is broken BUT … we will look at worldwide citizen activism to make things right … AND … proper urban design – making our cities and even the boring burbs livable places.
Our featured guest today is John Massengale. John is an international thought leader on the connections between urban design, architecture, placemaking, and walkability. As principal at Massengale & Co. and the author of three books, he has more than 25 years’ experience designing projects in Europe and across America and shares with his audiences innovative and proven strategies for success. His planning work spans a range of situations from suburban retrofits and designing new towns to urban infill and urban regeneration. At every scale—from arranging rooms to arranging buildings to organizing street plans—Massengale emphasizes context and the importance of making places where people want to be.
Massengale is the co-author with Victor Dover, FAICP, of Street Design: The Secret to Great Cities and Towns (Wiley, January 2014)
AND … our Senior Florida Correspondent, Steve Wiehe will join us. Steve has this bad habit of reading books … thus we will, as always, get some fine tips on what to home in on reading-wise!
