Organic urban growth: What we can learn from Charleston

Location: The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania Vance Hall, 3733 Spruce Street Room B11 Philadelphia, PA 19104

Witold Rybczynski speaks about his latest book, Charleston Fancy

Witold Rybczynski

The DVSGA and the Wharton Zell-Lurie Real Estate Center are co-hosting author and urbanist, Witold Rybczynski, on a discussion of organic urban growth through the story of Charleston, South Carolina.  Professor Rybzynski will be signing copies of his latest book, Charleston Fancy, which was published earlier in 2019.

“It’s no surprise that architect and urbanist Witold Rybczynski fell under the spell of Charleston, S.C., one of the most beautiful cities in the United States. Nor is it a shocker that this prolific author was inspired to write a book about Charleston in an attempt to get at the heart of what makes it special. What is surprising, and pleasantly so, is the circuitous route he takes to get us there.”-Logan Ward, Wall Street Journal

Witold Rybczynski is Emeritus Professor of Urbanism at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of Home, A Clearing in the Distance, City Life, and Last Harvest, among many others.
