Seeking the Just City: Reflections from a Distressed Optimist 


Toni L. Griffin is the founder of Urban Planning for the American City, based in New York.  Through the practice, Toni served as Project Director for the Detroit Work Project Long Term Planning initiative, and released Detroit Future City, a comprehensive citywide framework for urban transformation.  Current clients include the cities of Memphis, Milwaukee and Pittsburgh.

Toni is also Professor in Practice of Urban Planning at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where she will both teach and develop values-based planning methodologies through the Just City Design Lab. 

Most recently, Ms. Griffin was a Professor of Architecture and the founding Director of the J. Max Bond Center on Design for the Just City at the Spitzer School of Architecture at the City College of New York.  Founded in 2011, the Center’s work focused on Legacy City DesignInitiative; Just City Design Indicators Project; and Inclusion in Architecture, examining the participation of people of color in architecture and related design fields.

Toni has held several public sector positions including, Director of Community Development for Newark, New Jersey; Vice President and Director of Design for the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation in Washington, DC; and Deputy Director for Revitalization and Neighborhood Planning for the DC Office of Planning.  She began her career as an architect with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP in Chicago, where she became an Associate Partner.  

Ms. Griffin received a Bachelors of Architecture from the University of Notre Dame and a Loeb Fellowship from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.  In 2014, Toni was the Visiting Associate Professor and Theodore B. and Doris Shoong Lee Chair in Real Estate Law and Urban Planning, in the Department of City and Regional Planning at University of California, Berkeley.
