Remaking Post-Industrial Cities
with Don Carter
Tuesday, October 23rd
How did different cities respond to the rapid collapse of “big industry” in the 1980’s? Are there lessons to be learned? What can we do now to create just, equitable communities?
Don Carter — the David Lewis Director of Urban Design and Regional Engagement of the Remaking Cities Institute — examines the histories of 10 American and European cities, their metamorphoses, and their prospects for the future. In these case studies he identifies and expands on the factors he has found to be crucial to the resilience of post-industrial cities.
Carter’s work tackles problems we cannot avoid. Sharing lessons from the experience of different cities, he ultimately shows us how to take control over our future.alphabet city, city of asylum, lecture
