Jeff Speck, a city planner and former director of design at the National Endowment for the Arts, talks about his book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time, in which he argues that urban centers should be designed to better suit pedestrians than automobiles. The author focuses on small to mid-sized cities, such as Providence, Rhode Island, which according to the author, if redesigned to be more walkable, would improve the standard of living. Jeff Speck spoke at Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon. close
