An excellent example of innovative and systematic approach to urban development. 

What can we learn from them and apply in Cincinnati?

Curitiba, Brazil, is the birthplace of bus rapid transit, the high-capacity urban public transportation system developed under the leadership of former city mayor Jaime Lerner. The ensuing transit-oriented development (TOD) underscored the importance of organizing urban areas around transport corridors and led Curitiba to be hallmarked as the most successful example of TOD.

Also watch the TEDx speech of former mayor of Curitiba, Jaime Lerner, who reinvented urban space in his city. Along the way, he changed the way city planners worldwide see what’s possible in the metropolitan landscape.

From building opera houses with wire to mapping the connection between the automobile and your mother-in-law, Jaime Lerner delights in discovering eccentric solutions to vexing urban problems. In the process he has transformed the face of cities worldwide.
