Gil Penalosa, the founder of 8-80 cities and a consultant with Gehl Architects, speaks at a TEDx conferences about towns and cities can adapt and improve. He’s a smart guy, and his ideas and advice are beyond political ideologies. He speaks common sense that is unfortunately all too uncommonly followed. The good news, though, is that the steps he advocates really aren’t that difficult to take. They can find new form in every place, every town, every city, making every community more livable, lovable, and sustainable.
How might Sarasota implement Gil’s ideas? How might it leverage its many advantages to become an even better place?
