Residential Architecture Magazine named David to their Hall of Fame as the person we call to ask about cities. In recent years he has led planning post-Katrina New Orleans, transformed malls into new suburban downtowns, and helped Washington DC maximize the social as well as economic benefits of a new streetcar system.
David’s impact hasn’t gone unnoticed – he has won dozens of awards from the likes of the American Institute of Architects, American Planning Association, Congress for the New Urbanism, and International Downtown Association. A Fellow of the AIA, David was honored with their Thomas Jefferson Medal for “a lifetime of creating livable neighborhoods, vibrant civic spaces, and vital downtowns.” He recently published the second edition of Urban Design for an Urban Century: Shaping More Livable, Equitable, and Resilient Cities, coauthored with Lance J. Brown.
Always eager to hear about the needs and challenges of cities, David encourages you to get in touch…and means it.
David is joining a panel on “Helping and Leveraging Low-Income and Underserved Communities” at the Rising Seas Summit, November 3-5 in Boston, MA. And please visit our booth during the breaks!
