A Smart Growth Network Webinar
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 1:00pm EDT

William (Holly) Whyte was a pioneer of people-centered urban design who challenged planners to look beyond their desks and drawings: “You have to get out and walk.”

Richard Rein, author of the new biography of White, American Urbanist: How William H. Whyte's Unconventional Wisdom Reshaped Public Life joined us to offer a glimpse into the mind of an urbanist whose thoughts changed how planners and others think about how to create the kinds of places where we want to live.
