The Sustainable City: Learning from Curitiba
February 6, 2013

As mayor of Curitiba, Brazil, Jaime Lerner transformed the city by devising creative and flexible approaches to urban problems. He will offer his views on the key urban issues of our times, the role of cities as refuges, and ways to enhance design in structuring urban growth. Lerner argues that mobility, sustainability, and identity are key areas for intervention, and “Urban Acupuncture” is a recommended strategy.
