The Mayors' Institute on City Design
The Mayors' Institute on City Design is one of the Endowment's most-heralded yet little-known programs. This 24-page brochure provides a thorough overview of the Institute, including an overview by founder Joe Riley, an urban case study, testimonials from program alumni, and a listing of all Institute participants over its eighteen-year history. 24 pp.
Mayor's Institute: Excellence in City Design
James S. Russell, editor
Founded in 1986, the Mayors' Institute is a program that turns mayors into design advocates by bringing them together with top designers in intensive three-day sessions. The history of this program is best described in another NEA document, "The Mayors' Institute on City Design." In contrast, this booklet was created as a resource for mayors, but is of equal interest to anyone concerned with the creation of more livable cities. It offers guidance on using architecture, landscape architecture, art, urban design, and planning to improve the public realm. 124 pp.
