Please join the Metropolitan Planning Council and City Lit Books for an evening with Jaime Lerner, former mayor of Curitiba, Brazil, renowned architect and urban planner, and author of the new book Urban Acupuncture. As mayor, Lerner championed a number of solutions familiar to metropolitan Chicago, including bus rapid transit, large-scale green infrastructure and Placemaking. Lerner describes that latter as “urban pinpricks,” small-scale interventions that have a ripple effect, creating vibrant communities.
Come and enjoy great company, refreshments and lively conversation, as we explore these issues and more. The program will begin at 5:30 p.m., with time to mingle before and after. City Lit Books will provide each attendee with a free copy of Urban Acupuncture!
Beer, wine and snacks will be provided. MPC thanks Goose Island Beer Company for libations. Space is limited, so RSVP today for only $15!
Jaime Lerner's work is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Center for the Living City.
