A new toolkit to repurpose the new year!
How to Reprogram the City is a 40-page self-guided collection of insights, examples, and exercises to help people discover the untapped potential in their own city.
It is the result of a decade of work, research, and workshops I have conducted around the world to help people improve cities by using existing urban assets in new ways.
The toolkit provides people with the tools to address a pressing problem: the new reality facing cities is one of limited resources.
Whether financial, spatial, or material, the content of cities is finite. Yet the context of that content – how we use the assets we already have – is where the opportunity exists to respond to increasing urban needs using limited resources.
The dozens of workshops I have led in numerous cities have honed my abilities to get people to think outside the box – to move their thinking from “this is” to “this could” – and shown me the most effective way to provide them with the tools to improve life in their city using what they already have.
