What We See: Advancing the Observations of Jane Jacobs
What We See: Advancing the Observations of Jane Jacobs

May 18, 2010

6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
AIA San Francisco 130 Sutter Street, 6th Floor
Co-Sponsored by New Village Press
Celebrate the release of What We See: Advancing the Observations of Jane Jacobs, the latest book from New Village Press, ADPSR's publishing arm. This compendium of original essays looks at the present and the future of our communities through the eyes and insights of more than thirty respected activists, scholars, economists, planners, and public figures around the world whose work has been inspired by Jacobs.

Join contributing authors Clare Cooper Marcus and Chester Hartman and co-editor Lynne Elizabeth for a conversation about next steps for shaping socially just, environmentally friendly, and economically prosperous urban communities.

"There is no better place to start than this book to see the wisdom Jane Jacobs so astutely covered almost 50 years ago. We are at the precipice of a new era and Jane Jacobs and her aficionados can show us what it could look like. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!"
-Fred Kent, President, Project for Public Spaces
