Stephen A. Goldsmith

Associate Professor in City and Metropolitan Planning
University of Utah

Stephen A. Goldsmith is an urban planner, artist, and scholar, whose wide-ranging projects find their grounding in the wisdom of Jane Jacobs.

Goldsmith founded and directed ArtSpace, a nonprofit developer of mixed-use live/work spaces in Salt Lake City, for nearly two decades. As a Harvard Loeb Fellow, he promoted collaborative design, ecological building, affordable housing, and walkable neighborhoods.

In 2000, as Salt Lake City planning director under Mayor Rocky Anderson, Goldsmith crafted progressive projects and policies for mixed-use neighborhoods, public transit zoning, and a "FitCities" urban sustainability and ethics program, launched in conjunction with the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Goldsmith also helped mentor the next generation of socially responsible planners and architects while acting as director of the Frederick P. Rose Architectural Fellowship for four years. Currently, Goldsmith is associate professor in city and metropolitan planning at the University of Utah. He also serves as director of the Center for the Living City.
