“Hip Hop Is New Urbanism” As A Design Lesson For Cities
Hip-hop was born in the city - a cultural product of its socioeconomic time.
Now, what first took shape as a music genre a half-century ago, and what it has inspired since, has something to say about cities today - and what cities can be.

He manages more than six million dollars in commercial and multifamily real estate assets.
Next week, Bruzenskey will visit Chattanooga - as the first speaker in this fall’s CIVIQ series presented by Chattanooga Design Studio.

I spoke with Bruzenskey - and the Studio’s David Chalker.
