Hierarchy of urban spaces

Hierarchy of Cities

How do we talk with decision makers and other citizens about being the best they can be?

How can we help them see opportunties to realize their full potential by inventing new categories; by bringing people together in new ways?

The diagram above was inspired by Abraham Maslow’s concept of self actualization by understanding of a hierarchy of needs.

In cities like my home town of Detroit, people are becoming aware that they have new options beyond building replacement projects.
