A Dystopian Future
Urban studies professor Joel Kotkin is not convinced that the frenzy for redesigning cities is good for everyone. In fact, he writes in his book, The Human City: Urbanism for the Rest of Us, that the designers do not consider the needs and desires of the vast majority of people.
Joel Kotkin is a fellow in urban studies at Chapman University in Orange, California. He writes about demographic, social, and economic trends in the U.S. and internationally.
David Brooks of the New York Times tagged Kotkin with the title “America’s uber-geographer”.
