A Country of Cities

In A Country of Cities, author Vishaan Chakrabarti, Founder; Practice for Architecture and Urbanism and Associate Professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, argues that well-designed cities are the key to solving America's great national challenges: environmental degradation, unsustainable consumption, economic stagnation, rising public health costs and decreased social mobility. In this webinar, Professor Chakrabarti will convey how wise development of our cities in the future can be the force leading us into a new era of progressive and prosperous stewardship for the US. Professor Chakrabarti will provide a wealth of information about cities, suburbs and exurbs, looking at how they developed across the 50 states and their roles in prosperity and globalization, sustainability and resilience, and also heath and joy.
