Event description

Description

Trace the complicated history of efforts to reimagine cities in the face of an increasingly suburban landscape in the decades following World War II through the lens of the life of famed urban planner Edward Logue. Harvard professor Lizabeth Cohen, who looks at this pivotal moment in urban history in her book, Saving America’s Cities, is led in conversation by Columbia University’s Kenneth Jackson. The story of Logue’s clashes with the likes of both Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs to bring renewal projects to fruition, highlights the complexity of creating vibrant, equitable cities.
