Biography

Michael King is driven by the realization that the auto-centric city of the 20th Century has proven to be a failure. The city of tomorrow must be re-envisioned for those living and prospering in it, not driving through it. As Moshe Safdie wrote in The City After the Automobile (1997), architects ignore “…what often appear[s] to be overwhelming related transportation problems.”
