This Friday, Mindy Fullilove launches her much anticipated new book, Urban Alchemy! It is about how to fix our cities. Urban Alchemy proposes that the great problem of the American city is that, for over 100 years, it has been sorted out by race, class, age, and other factors. It make great cities, we must repair the fracture. Drawing on urbanists’s work in cities around the world, this book presents NINE ELEMENTS OF URBAN RESTORATION to use in that repair.
“Urban Alchemy will inform and transform our visions – and re-visions – of what cities are and what they can become. What a vibrant, important book!” -Sarah Crystal
“Urban Alchemy is like no other book about cities. It is an urbanistic excursion led by Fullilove, her friends, mentors and family that weaves across the ocean linking urban placesand peoples on both sides of the divide.” – Ron Shiffman, Founder of Pratt Center for Community Development.
