RESOURCEFUL IDEAS TO IMPROVE LIFE IN CITIES
From billboards in Lima, Peru, repurposed to generate clean drinking water to bus shelters in Umeå, Sweden that improve the mental health of commuters during dark winter months, Reprogramming the City uncovers a new spirit of creative resourcefulness that is transforming cities around the world.
“Reprogramming the City is a hopeful anthology of solutions for our hot, crowded planet. Anyone reading Scott Burnham’s essential book will emerge reassured by the transformative power of agency and creativity in the world’s urban centers that is still within our grasp.”
– Renée Loth, editor, AchitectureBoston magazine
