Charleston: An Architectural Legacy, Part II An Interview with Mayor Joe Riley | Classicist Blog

Last month, following the conclusion of Joe Riley’s 40 years in office as Mayor of Charleston, I wrote a piece celebrating that city’s remarkable architectural legacy. In February, I had the opportunity to speak with Mayor Riley about how he helped revitalize Charleston during a time when the future of the American city was in doubt, and how his leadership helped galvanize mayors across the country to engage more actively in urban design. We spoke about how to balance modern development in a traditional environment, his reverence for the public realm, and his next project: the International African American Museum.
