Phoenix Urban Design Week 2015: Your Guide to This Year's Events

Building an entire city would be pretty rad. The one million people who bought the latest city-building video game, Cities: Skylines, in the past month probably agree. If only constructing a perfect metropolis in real life were as simple as a few mouse clicks. Of course, that's not the case. But the time and effort that go into creating a city like Phoenix give it history, community, and culture. And that's pretty rad, too.

Starting April 18, Phoenix Urban Design Week 2015 is going to amp up the love for the Valley by delving into what makes Phoenix the city it is -- and how it could change for the better.

With a full week of events ranging from tours of historic buildings to an über-competitive Pinewood derby, it may be hard to decide what events you don't want to miss. Lucky for you, we've laid them all out in our guide to PUDW 2015.
