John Knechtel (Canada) is the director of the interdisciplinary think tank Alphabet City, which he founded in 1991. Every year Alphabet City selects one of the most significant issues shaping public life today and addresses it through many diverse perspectives. The results are published in a hardcover anthology copublished with The MIT Press.
Back issues include: 'Food', 'Fuel', 'Trash' and 'Water'.

The Knight's Move
The lecture by John Knechtel is part of the series of lectures by eminent international speakers who stand out by their unusual, enlightening and inspirational visions concerning the city, urbanity, the public domain, and community. Just as the knight moves in an atypical and unusual way across the chessboard, Stroom likewise wants to cut across all disciplines and thus stimulate rethinking the city.

This series of lectures is made possible by the financial support of the Netherlands Architecture Fund.
