Drawing on six years as the editor of Urban Omnibus, one of the leading publications charting innovations in urban practice, Cassim Shepard explores a broad variety of projects in New York, a city at the forefront of experimental and practical research. Cities are the laboratories of the future, and in Citymakers, Shepard offers a vivid survey of urbanism today, showing that it is no longer just the domain of planners, politicians, and power brokers, but of an array of citizens working at the vanguard of increasingly diverse practices, from community gardeners to architects to housing advocates.

 

Cassim Shepard is the Principal of SQ Projects, a media consulting and production practice. Shepard was the founding Editor-in-Chief of Urban Omnibus, an online publication of the Architectural League of New York. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia GSAPP.
