Portland, OR  City Repair’s Visionary Architect
Mark Lakeman is returning to Los Angeles!

All across the U.S. residents long for a sense of
community.  Portland’s City Repair www.cityrepair.org
is one inspiring example of successful grassroots
action to reclaim public spaces.  Mark Lakeman
inspires and guides participants in reconfiguring
America’s typical car-dominated grid structures into a
vital social commons.  Now a national movement, City
Repair is about cities, towns, grids and the
intersections where our lives converge.  
Multidisciplinary, City Repair combines architecture,
urban planning, anthropology, community development,
public art, permaculture and ecological design in
projects that transform public space.
