Providing the space for ideas on place to grow.
Whether civic-minded people are gathering to discuss issues facing a neighborhood or to hear about the history of a street corner, we have a space to meet. The University of Louisville's Urban Design Studio in downtown offers a place for ideation.
Citystate started as an experimental urban affairs radio show on WXOX 97.1 Louisville that is now available as a podcast. Patrick Piuma, Director of the Urban Design Studio, co-hosts the show with fellow urban planner Pat Smith and landscape architect Patrick Henry. Citystate covers all things civic-related with discussions, interviews and music, exploring urban issues and culture locally, nationally, and around the globe.
The purpose of the show is to not only disseminate information about urban issues that face the community, but learn from people doing civic work on the ground in Louisville and around the world.
