What makes a great city? Not a good city or a functional city but a great city. A city that people admire, learn from, and replicate. City planner and architect Alexander Garvin set out to answer this question by observing cities, largely in North America and Europe, with special attention to Paris, London, New York, and Vienna.
Join noted planner, educator, and author Alex Garvin at the UCLA Luskin Center for a discussion about his new book What Makes a Great City with a panel of local experts.
