John Norquist to Lecture about New Urbanism


Paul Offner Lecture


Paul Offner’s legacy of applying good scholarship to public policy solutions, especially for society’s disadvantaged, is celebrated in an annual lecture held every other year at the University of Wisconsin – Madison


John Norquist

John Norquist’s work promoting new urbanism as an alternative to sprawl and antidote to sprawl’s social and environmental problems draws on his experience as big-city mayor and prominent participant in national discussions on urban design and school reform — as well as his degree from the La Follette School.

As president of the Congress for the New Urbanism in Chicago, Norquist has joined local activists in numerous cities as a key champion of plans to replace freeways with boulevards. A leader in national discussions of urban design and educational issues, Norquist is the author of The Wealth of Cities and has taught courses in urban policy and urban planning at the University of Chicago, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning, and at Marquette University.
