Peter speaks at Politico's 'What Works: Denver'
Peter Calthorpe was among the experts invited by Politico Magazine to participate in a breakfast conversation about the future of cities as part of their yearlong reporting project, What Works. Other headline speakers included Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, former Salt Lake City Mayor Deedee Corradini, Robert Bruegmann, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Art History, Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Charlie Harper, Editor-in-Chief of the Peach Pundit and Executive Director of PolicyBEST. The discussion centered around what the rise of cities means for a heavily suburban America. Is sprawl dead? Can mass transit work for urban areas reinventing themselves—or are our politics too broken?
