Join us to learn about Charles Wolfe’s latest book, Sustaining a City’s Culture and Character which draws upon his experience as an environmental and land use lawyer. The book investigates how cities are successful at fostering and sustaining place identity, and what it takes to retain their specific urban essence and why some places do it better than others. Wolfe systematically illustrates a process to evaluate place-making by advancing a methodology of looking, engaging, assessing, reviewing and negotiating (LEARN). The author’s organizing principle, the LEARN template can be applied to decode any place at any scale. The book instigates an useful critical dialogue for anyone interested in the built environment, community-building, place-making, and habitation.
Wolfe will be joined by his co-author Professor Tigran Haas, School of Architecture and the Built Environment at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden and interviewed by Jennifer Hurley, a Fellow of the Congress for the New Urbanism.
