Don Carter Pens Opening Chapter for SynergiCity
"The Future of the Post-Industrial City"
Don Carter, Director of the Remaking Cities Institute and Chair of the Master of Urban Design Program in the School of Architecture, wrote the opening chapter in SynergiCity: Reinventing the Post-Industrial City, a new book from the University of Illinois Press due out in October.
Carter was asked by the book editors to write the opening chapter, "The Future of the Post-Industrial City," using the transformation of Pittsburgh from industrially-based to technology-based as a case study.
