A born and bred Philadelphian, Harris Steinberg has dedicated his career to understanding and enriching Philadelphia’s celebrated urbanism. An architect, Harris engages citizens in solving some of the city’s greatest urban design challenges. His leadership of the award-winning 2006-2007 Civic Vision for the Central Delaware upended 30-years of failed waterfront development and altered Philadelphia’s planning history. Harris directs Drexel’s Lindy Institute for Urban Innovation – an urban problem-solving think tank with global reach that recently launched the country’s first master’s degree program in urban strategy.  Prior to being at Drexel, Harris helped found and lead PennPraxis – the clinical arm of PennDesign. Harris currently chairs the Philadelphia Task Force on Historic Preservation and he and his wife, Jane, who raised two now-grown sons in Mt. Airy, recently built a house on the edge of Wissahickon Valley Park – his favorite place in the city.
