Chuck Wolfe presented his new book, Urbanism Without Effort, at a ULI book release party on May 7th. The book explores traditional relationships between people and cities, how they are relevant today, and how the physical form of the public realm influences the way that individuals interact with the places and people around them. Wolfe, a land use attorney and University of Washington professor, supplemented his visual presentation with compelling vignettes and personal anecdotes to spark spontaneous discussions about organic place-making. Attendees shared stories of their own urban experience, representing government, academic, and private-sector perspectives.
A more detailed presentation will be held at Town Hall Seattle on June 19 at 6:00 p.m.
