Building Cities With Citizen Ideas & Money [My Ideal City]
Real-estate pioneer Rodrigo Niño explains how his current project, My Ideal City, seeks to bring citizens and experts together to build a better city.
Rodrigo Niño is the director of My Ideal City – a collaboration with leading architects Winka Dubbeldam and Gary Hack, as well as citizens themselves, to bring about a crowdsourced’ and crowdfunded solution to the problems that cities around the world faces today. Already a speaker at PSFK CONFERENCE 2013, he spoke recently with PSFK.com about how he sees his vision developing and how he hopes that it will encourage other urban metropolises in emerging nations to follow suit.
