Jaime Lerner on TED Talks


Jaime Lerner, the former mayor of Curitiba, Brazil and renown architect and urban planner, talks about cities as the solutions to sustainability. Jaime talks about the designs of cities, Bus Rapid Transportations (BRT) systems, education, and creative cities.

My favorite quote from the talk:
“The car is like your mother-in-law. You have to have good relationship with her, but she cannot command your life….If the only woman in your life is your mother-in-law, you have a problem.”
