Please Join us on October 20th, 2014, as we celebrate the release of 'Urban Acupuncture', a book by Jaime Lerner— the visionary architect, urbanist and three-term mayor of Curitiba, Brazil.
This book examines “pinpricks” of change — small interventions which bring people together and spark interest and action among the citizenry. Lerner invites us to re-imagine the true building blocks of vibrant communities in a discussion of Urban Acupuncture.
An RSVP to this event buys your ticket to 'An Evening with Jaime Lerner' and your copy of the book Urban Acupuncture.
Jaime Lerner will be available for book signing after the presentation.
If you already have a copy of the book, but would like to attend, please contact Alanna Beitz at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your ticket.
When & Where
The Urbanspace Gallery was created to explore ‘the city’. A venue for diverse exhibitions and events, the gallery investigates how cities work, how we might improve them, and how we can learn from the past to create visions of the future.
With a focus on "bottom-up", grass roots approaches, a wide range of local and global issues are examined including community, public space, housing, transportation, planning, governance, diversity, sustainability, and citizenship. In partnership with many individuals and organizations, Urbanspace Gallery seeks to contribute to an ongoing discussion about cities, and offers visitors a space to learn and reflect on their place within them.
