“How Not What” Volume I: Civic Studio

Paul Wittenbraker in conversation with Like Riding a Bicycle.

This interview series delves into the work that people do in the places they live, over time. In an outcomes-oriented world, we tend to focus on the results of our actions, but with these conversations we aim to flip this script and talk about how something is accomplished, the day to day of action in place. Focusing on the “how” of a project, to learn from each other what we can do.
