    Jeff Speck, AICP, CNU-A, LEED-AP, Honorary ASLA Principal, Speck & Associates LLC

    Jeff Speck is a city planner and urban designer who advocates internationally for more walkable cities. As Director of Design at the National Endowment for the Arts from 2003 through 2007, he presided over the Mayors' Institute on City Design and created the Governors' Institute on Community Design. Prior to his federal appointment, Mr. Speck spent ten years as Director of Town Planning at DPZ & Co., the principal firm behind the New Urbanism movement. Since 2007, he has led Speck & Associates, a boutique planning firm that specializes in making American downtowns thrive.

    With Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Mr. Speck is the co-author of The Smart-Growth Manual and the "modern classic" Suburban Nation, which the Wall Street Journal calls "the urbanist’s bible." His latest book, Walkable City–which the Christian Science Monitor calls "timely and important, a delightful, insightful, irreverent work" –was the best selling city-planning book of 2013-16.

    "Truly a book that is so very needed, Walkable City moves theory into action. We now know we need to build walkable urban places for all sorts of economic, social, and environmental reasons. Jeff Speck shows how to do it in the same clear style we came to love in the classic Suburban Nation." —Christopher B. Leinberger, visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution and author of The Option of Urbanism.
