Edges: How People Are Separated in Cities and What Can Be Done About It
Richard Sennett grew up in Chicago’s Cabrini Green public housing complex, studied to become a classical cellist, and was drawn to sociology after sustaining a hand injury. Mr. Sennett brings a unique perspective to the design of buildings and cities; his groundbreaking books have focused on the relation of the human body to the architecture of the city and how people move through – and use – urban spaces.
Presented in partnership with Urban Habitat Chicago.
