Event description

Description

Susanna Schaller (pictured) talks about her book Business Improvement Districts and the Contradictions of Placemaking: BID Urbanism in Washington, D.C. The “livable city,” the “creative city,” and more recently the “pop-up city” have become pervasive monikers that identify a new type of urbanism that has sprung up globally, produced and managed by the business improvement district and known colloquially by its acronym, BID. With this case study, Schaller draws on more than fifteen years of research to present a direct, focused engagement with both the planning history that shaped Washington, D.C.’s landscape and the intricacies of everyday life, politics, and planning practice as they relate to BIDs.

Schaller is an assistant professor in urban studies, administration, and planning at the Division of Interdisciplinary Studies at the Center for Worker Education at the City College of New York.

LOCATION: Mount Pleasant Neighborhood Library, 3160 Sixteenth Street, NW, Washington, DC 20010.
