Richard Florida Giving Free Lecture This Friday At UTA

As part of the Maverick Speakers Series, UTA is hosting best selling author of the books “Rise of the Creative Class“, and “Flight of the Creative Class“.

Richard has written extensively about what makes a city successful, and the new trends in planning to draw in young talent that helps shape a communities character. His most recent book, “Who’s Your City?“, discusses how deciding on where to live can be the most important decision of your life. Specifically, he draws on the new molds championed by creative entrepreneurs and planners in cities like Portland, Austin, and Boulder, and how the developments they pioneered are quickly being adopted by other communities that wish to stay ahead of the curve. Bicycle infrastructure has been a topic of late that he’s featured in his regular article for the Atlantic.
