Event description

Description

Charles Wolfe from Seattle is the author of Urbanism without Effort and speaks about his new book, Seeing the Better City where he highlights how the perspective of the observer is key to understanding the dynamics of urban space.

He will offer contemporary examples and guidance on how to use carefully recorded and organised observations as a tool to create change in urban planning conversations and practice.

Charles R. (Chuck) Wolfe provides a unique, broad-based perspective about cities as an urbanist writer, Seattle-based land use attorney, photographer, and affiliate associate professor.

He recently founded Seeing Better Cities Group (SBC) to improve the conversation around how cities grow and evolve both nationally and across the world. He helps developers and municipalities with policy-related issues and community involvement strategies, shares his insights and expertise as a dynamic speaker, and leads explorations of urban spaces impacted by rapid change and growth.

Chuck is the author of two books, Seeing the Better City (2017) and Urbanism Without Effort (2013), which serve as the foundation of his work at SBC. He has contributed regularly to: Planetizen, CityLab/The Atlantic Cities, The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, Grist, seattlepi.com, crosscut.com and his blog, myurbanist.com. Chuck is also an Affiliate Associate Professor in the College of Built Environments at the University of Washington, where he teaches land use law at a graduate level. This November and December, he will serve as a visiting affiliate faculty researcher at KTH University and its Centre for Future of Places in Stockholm.
