There is an important role for unsanctioned city building. Pillow fights, illegal signs, anti-establishment restaurants -- Peter Kageyama argues that the silly, nonsensical, and weird are what make cities not only livable, but loveable. He even advocates for a little rule-breaking to get the job done.
Peter is the author of For the Love of Cities: The Love Affair Between People and Their Places and the follow up, Love Where You Live: Creating Emotionally Engaging Places. He is an internationally sought-after speaker and consultant with expertise in community development and grassroots engagement strategy.
