MARS HILL AUDIO Anthology 10

The Good City: Community and Urban Order

In this Anthology, Ken Myers talks with architects, historians, activists, and clergy about how loving our neighbors can and must take shape in how we order the material aspects of shared life. The conversations on this Anthology give particular attention to how the New Urbanist movement has challenged the dehumanizing effects of modernism in urban design. 100 minutes. $6.
