The GOOD Cities Project

We create the cities we love, and the cities we love create us.

The GOOD Cities Project is all about how we make our cities, and how our cities make us. It’s a theme near to our hearts at GOOD, and something we’re excited to take to the next level by working together with Ford.

To kick off this project, we thought the best place to start was our own home of Los Angeles, with our Co-founder and CEO of GOOD, Ben Goldhirsh. We asked Ben to tell us about the journey that brought him to Los Angeles, and how Los Angeles has made him who he is today.

The GOOD Cities Project is a five-month collaboration with Ford, exploring how we make our cities and how our cities make us. As part of the project, GOOD and Ford have commissioned cultural creatives across the country to help illuminate and celebrate the rich and vastly diverse points of view that make up each city's individual character. Each week, we will be exploring attributes that we believe are fundamental to living meaningful urban lives.
