Charles Wolfe, author of Seeing the Better City: How to Explore, Observe and Improve Urban Space  (Island Press), shares insights about the ways in which city dwellers can take into account the influences of urban form, neighborhood dynamics, public transportation, and other elements impacting their daily lives and use our observations to contribute to better planning and design decisions. Tonight he will focus on addressing changes and concerns we face in our city and how these relate to other cities and examples from urban history. He'll draw upon his experiences in Seattle’s Madrona neighborhood, the Central Area and Capitol Hill's Pike/Pine corridors.  Charles Wolfe, a land use attorney, author and photographer, serves on the Board of Directors of Futurewise, and serves as an Affiliate Associate Professor of Urban Design an Planning at the University of Washington.
