    The Art of Creative City Making by Charles Landry is an exhibition-event that celebrates the use of imagination and creativity as crucial strategic resources in the process of city change and regeneration. In Favara, in the spaces of Palazzo Miccichè and in the context of the SI – South Italy Architecture Festival, is an exhibition – for the first time ever – dedicated to the theoretical and practical thinking of this extraordinary author and leading expert of the Creative City as well as the art of City Making.

    The event itself is presented by an ambitious and original formula: paper posters exhibited across numerous interior walls and graphic stands as well as on the street. The aim is to create a visually striking story. On these posters, as in Landry’s work, the word assumes the role of carrier, useful for triggering every form of reasoning, giving shape and substance to the proposed themes.

    The Art of Creative City Making by Charles Landry is an experiment designed to communicate a selected series of concepts in a simpler way that is both transversal and as effective as possible, with a willingness to make them accessible to all and invite every visitor to feel part of a unique, grand movement of action, of a broad and pervasive community of individuals who desire to live in a city that continues to improve.

    Space Grotesk is the main typeface, combined with Happy Times at the IKOB for longer texts.
