New Urbanism is like the town hall of democratic politics: a mixed-used, mixed-income community whose members find common ground just by getting out of their cars and hanging out or walking in the streets. Yet one of the visionaries behind this way of living says democracies haven't been all that good at giving rise to equitable cities. Born in Cuba, raised in Spain, and currently practicing architecture in the United States, Andrés Duany will discuss new ideas for city planning, including his latest passion, lean urbanism. (Hint: it involves getting bureaucracy out of the way.)
