At our company, Intelligent Futures, we talk to a lot of people about cities – like, a lot. Over the years, we’ve talked about what it takes to make cities better with urban planners, visual artists, not-for-profit organizations, entrepreneurs, politicians, urban gardeners, community volunteers, developers, kids, architects, scientists, transportation engineers, design thinkers and policymakers (to name a few). These conversations highlight that cities are complex, messy and ever-changing creations that are built by many hands in many ways.
We thought that other people might find these conversations interesting too. So we started 360 degree city - a podcast that explores cities from a wide range of perspectives. We’ll be looking at the city from a whole bunch of angles.
