ANDREW HOWARD is a Loeb Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Mr. Howard is one of the leading experts in transportation and place making in the nation. His career combines two important American traditions: entrepreneurship—the spirit of enterprise, and civic virtue—the spirit of community. He, as the co-Founder of the Better Block and Principal at Team Better Block LLC, helps communities develop and organize their economic assets to build productive, resilient relationships across the public, private, and civil sectors. Now being used in over fifty cities and three nations, the Better Block demonstrates how temporary sustainability improvements to a single city block can build momentum for long-term financial, social and environmental advancements.  The American Society of Landscape Architects called it, “a 21st-century version of what the Chicago World’s Fair did in 1893.” Mr. Howard’s overarching goal is to equip new leaders to take action in their communities. Through his business and civic ventures he is able to motivate everyday citizens, develop walkable places and positively influence organizational and cultural change in government.
