Archiculture Interviews: Jess Zimbabwe

"We as a species assign value to people based on the environments we ask them to live in. And I think most people are worth more than a lot of the environments that we ask them to live, work, attend school and shop in."

In the latest Archiculture interview from Arbuckle Industries, architect and planner Jess Zimbabwe discusses the power of design and its role in politics. As former director of Mayors' Institute on City Design, Zimbabwe shares examples of proactive mayors who've used architecture as a way to spur economic development in their communities and help shape an environment worthy of its inhabitants.
