Jane Jacobs is a famous urbanist and writer whose views of city living has inspired architects, philosophers, and urban planners worldwide. She is known for her book, written in 1961, The Death and Life of Great American Cities. She argues that urban renewal - a common planning policy in US cities - was damaging to the everyday city dweller.

She was involved in local activism in New York to protest planned slum clearance and development projects. She was arrested in 1968 for protesting a proposed expressway through lower Manhattan, a proposal which was later cancelled. Jane Jacobs was often criticized for lacking in credentials but is also considered a force for ground up urban activism.

An architect is a person who designs buildings. They design how the building is going to look, both inside and outside, but also the infrastructure of the building and how the building will be used. To practice architecture means to engage with the spatial practices that make up our lives.
