Jeffrey Raven architect and a professor

Cities, both a problem and a solution

Cities, like asphalt jungles, are dense inhabited spaces. Yet this density also helps limiting urban sprawl. Jeffrey Raven is a professor at the New York Institute of Technology and an architect specializing in resilient urban design. He advocates for the positive aspects of urbanization and seeks to resolve urban heat island effects by exploring the form, function, materiality and vegetation of the urban fabric.
