Talk - 'Remixing Spaces as Places'

Mixing prose and poetry, images and imagery, Simmons B. Buntin presents an artistic vision of landscape – natural and built – that defines livable places more broadly than just human communities. The discussion begins with a slideshow of vibrant, sustainable neighborhoods detailed in his new book "Unsprawl." He'll recite poetry from the suburban fringe. And he'll conclude by reading a Sonoran desert essay that explores the public and personal risks of remixing spaces as places. Reception to follow.
