“Consider this—one hundred cities are responsible for most of the economic, cultural, and innovative activity in the world. And that will only grow in the years ahead. The cities that invest in infrastructure that supports the inventive human spirit will succeed. The cities that don’t will unquestionably fade.”

– An excerpt from The Joy Experiments

Welcome to The Joy Experiments — a discussion about city building for the human spirit.

Cities have always been the source of invention, resilience, tolerance and prosperity. Given our current and unprecedented need for all these things, how can we start creating better cities?

This soon to be released book and podcast by Scott Higgins, President of HIP Developments and writer/creative director Paul Kalbfleisch, provides a common platform for politicians, citizens, architects, city planners, and business leaders to come together and shape communities in ways that reflect the needs of our souls and our future.

Let’s keep in touch.
