“CITY STATES”
MICHAEL SORKIN

Brilliant, mercurial, and never afraid to make the facts shine, Michael Sorkin is perhaps the most important urbanist and architectural thinker in the world today. As a writer and critic, and as author of hundreds of influential essays on wide ranging themes, he has been a tremendous force in the ethics and practice of contemporary architecture. In 2013, he won the National Design Award as “Design Mind.” Michael Sorkin is also Principal of the Michael Sorkin Studio, a global design practice working at all scales with a special interest in the city and green architecture; President and founder of Terreform, a non-profit institute dedicated to research into the forms and practices of just and sustainable urbanism; and Co-President of the Forum and Institute for Urban Design. He is also Distinguished Professor of Architecture and Director of the Graduate Program in Urban Design at City College of New York.
