Mayors' Institute on City Design

The best way I can describe my experience is the experience of people who get glasses for the first time — you see things totally differently and clearly. As mayor, I wasn’t used to thinking about things from the design perspective at all, except for aesthetics. I feel like I have a new set of glasses on and it will help me translate projects in a way that will have better impact on the city.
