Creating cities that work for everyone means seeing them from different perspectives — literally. In Seeing the Better City, urbanist writer, photographer and land-use attorney Charles R. Wolfe takes urban observation beyond design review and zoning codes, charting a future where all city-dwellers—from citizens to real estate professionals and government personnel– can contribute to the improvement of their city. Wolfe presents an empowering, comprehensive toolkit for cataloging the influences of neighborhood dynamics, public transportation, urban form and other elements that impact day-to-day life in a city.


Join ULI Washington, CNU DC, NCAC-APA, and Island Press for a lively discussion of themes from Seeing the Better City.   Kaid Benfield, former director of the Sustainable Communities and Smart Growth program at the Natural Resources Defense Council and author of People Habitat, will moderate this interview-style program, which will also include time for audience Q&A. 

Bios of Mr. Wolfe and Mr. Benfield are at this link.
