Celebrate the publication of Citymakers: The Culture and Craft of Practical Urbanism by Cassim Shepard, founding editor of Urban Omnibus, the online publication of The Architectural League.


Citymakers draws from projects and perspectives featured on Urban Omnibus in order to argue for a more expansive understanding of how, and by whom, cities are made today. Shepard will present a brief talk about the ideas explored in the book and his vision of citymaking as a crucial arena of imagination, ethics, and action.

A reception and book signing will follow.

Citymakers: The Culture and Craft of Practical Urbanism is published by The Monacelli Press in association with The Architectural League of New York.
