Reviews

"Millions of people live in cities but have no say in how they evolve. This results in distortions of the democratic process, which we might call 'planning gerrymandering, ' and dysfunctional cities. Resilience for All reports on efforts from around the United States to open up the process, to get the people's voices heard, their power awakened, so that our urbanizing nation can be a healthy one. A great guide for everyone who wants to know the process of better city-making."--Mindy Thompson Fullilove, MD, Honorary AIA, author of "Urban Alchemy: Restoring Joy in America's Sorted-Out Cities"
"This timely book provides the essential documented pathways for dealing with communities of color and distress. In the past, we have spent hours engaging residents at community meetings and invited professional voices to assist us. We assumed we were empowering the community's voice and vision. Resilience for All demonstrates that addressing residents is an initial step, but fully empowering them as the agent of change is the pathway to success."--Ron Sims, Former Deputy Secretary, US Department of Housing and Urban Development
"This book should be required reading for architects, planners, and anyone else working on complex urban challenges. Resilience for All skillfully presents the structural inequities that are the context for public interest design, and offers practical case studies that confront traditional notions of community engagement and the role of the designer. Dr. Wilson connects the dots between systems-level oppression and on-the-ground design interventions that bring new insights and useful methods to today's conversation about equity and ecology in cities. If you read anything about resilience this year, read this book!"--Gia Biagi, Principal of Urbanism and Civic Impact at Studio Gang
"Resilience for All is a useful handbook for landscape architects wondering how their skill sets might apply to community-led planning and design. It demonstrates how landscapes can be a powerful resource for vulnerable communities. And it also shows how communities can positively impact landscapes."--ASLA's The Dirt
