Alexander Garvin, author of The Planning Game: Lessons from Great Cities asks: Can planners—or anyone—improve a neighborhood, city, suburb, or region? Planning does work and he’ll join us to explain how. His talk will provide a focused, thorough, and sophisticated overview of how planning works and discuss the public realm approach to planning—an approach that emphasizes the importance of public investments in what we own: streets, squares, parks, infrastructure, and public buildings.

Alexander Garvin, strategist of the public realm, is currently president and CEO of AGA Public Realm Strategists, a planning and design firm in New York City. He is adjunct professor of urban planning and management at Yale University, where he has taught a wide range of courses for forty-two years, including Introduction to the Study of the City, which has remained one of the most popular courses in Yale College.
