Street Plans co-founders Anthony Garcia and Mike Lydon will be working on a new Island Press book this year with journalist John Surico. Stay tuned!
Whether it’s counteracting the still persistent crisis of traffic violence, addressing the local impacts of climate change, responding to global pandemic, or breathing life back into historically disinvested neighborhoods, Tactical Urbanism is a proven catalyst for building community resilience – quickly.
Through a broad range of richly illustrated case studies Tactical Urbanism: 25 Ways to Transform Your City will dive into the continued growth of this people-centered approach to city building. This new book, to be published 10 years after the seminal Tactical Urbanism book defined a global movement, will document how tactical projects move from temporary to permanence, share specific implementation and community engagement techniques, and offer crucial lessons learned by the book’s authors who have helped cities large and small implement more than 150 Tactical Urbanism projects.
If you want to build a safer, more inclusive, resilient city, then this book is for you!
