About the Author

David Dixon
David helped found Stantec’s Urban Places, an interdisciplinary initiative focused on managing the accelerating pace of social, economic, environmental, and technological change. His work has won four APA national awards, including for a "Hard Won Victory" for New Orleans' post-Katrina Master Plan and was the first urban designer to receive the AIA’s Thomas Jefferson Medal for “a lifetime of making cities more livable.” Residential Architecture Magazine named him to their Hall of Fame "as the person we call when we have questions about cities." David speaks and writes regularly about a new era of urban opportunities for suburbs and on the transformational opportunities and challenges autonomous mobility poses for cities and suburbs alike. He is the co-editor (with Jason Beske) of Suburban Remix: the next generation of urban places (Island Press, 2018) and co-author of Urban Design for an Urban Century: shaping more livable, equitable and resilient cities (Wiley, 2015).
