Seattle, WA
Share this event:

As Chief Urban Designer at the New York Department of City Planning, Alexandros Washburn has been at the forefront of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's epic remaking of the city. World traveler, global professor, and bicycle commuter, he takes his sketchbook with him to cities around the world looking for best practices to bring home to New York City.

Washburn is working to increase resilience in cities personally as well as professionallyhe has been involved in the recovery effort in his neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn, which was hard hit by Hurricane Sandy. To meet this challenge he relies on his experience in a career made up of equal parts politics, finance and design: government staffer for the late Senator Moynihan, community developer and urban farmer in Durham, North Carolina, and design principal with national awards in urban design, architecture and landscape architecture, including New York's prestigious Public Architect Award. His goal is to meet the challenges of the day while improving the quality of civic life, and by writing this book, widen the circle of those who can learn to change cities for the better.

Presented with Seattle Design Commission, Seattle Planning Commission,  Office of Sustainability and Environment, and Seattle Department of Transportation.
