Moscato on Hume

June 7, 2008 at 7:20 am Leave a comment

Derek Moscato, The Province’s commentator on urban and other issues, attended Christopher Hume’s VIA Architecture lecture – and was good enough to send in these remarks:

What a great event. Kudos to the SFU City Program for bringing Christopher Hume to Vancouver — he is an insightful and interesting presenter. And truly an inspiration for those of us who write about cities.

It’s a testament to his journalism that another Toronto urbanist was also in Vancouver last night for a public presentation (Richard Florida, UBC Robson Square), and that the SFU Cities lecture with Hume had a strong turnout.

In my mind, Hume is great because he has a terrific grasp of the issues, a witty but biting style, but also, because he writes for all of us.

Plus, I’ll see Toronto in a whole new light when I’m there this summer.
