Term Assistant Professor, Urban Studies
Juan Rivero is an urban planner whose research deals with the cultural dimension of urban redevelopment, examining the values that people ascribe to places and how those relate to prevailing planning practice. This work intersects with urban concerns such as gentrification, historic preservation, tourism, and place-making. The academic focus of this research is complemented by Prof. Rivero's substantial experience in community advocacy. Prof. Rivero has written numerous articles and chapters on planning theory, historic preservation, and land use law, and is currently working on a book about the recent redevelopment of Coney Island, Brooklyn. He holds a Ph.D. in Planning and Public Policy from Rutgers University, as M.S. in City Planning from Columbia University and a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School. Prof. Rivero teaches the Senior Seminar on New York field research, a Junior Seminar focused on urban redevelopment, Urban Tourism, New York City Governance, and Land Use Law.
