The GOOD Cities Project

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

When facing a creative quandary, sometimes an outside perspective is just enough to shake you out of an inspiration rut. Sure, there are productive upsides to working in solitary, but, from time to time, two heads can often be better than one. Throughout history, specific locations have emerged as particularly kind to collaboration and innovation, ushering along vital advances for human progress in a diverse range of fields. Take a look at some of the historical hotspots where intellects and creatives alike have gathered to make headway for the greater good.

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.
