Maintaining Heritage Amid Transformation with Don Taylor
Reinvention has always been a central to the very idea of the modern metropolis, but can the cities of today simultaneously fuel radical transformation while maintaining the heritage that makes them special? In episode 4, development visionary Don Taylor of Swire Properties offers insights on the critical marriage of culture and growth from his revolutionary place-making experiences at One Taikoo Place in Hong Kong.
More than a City: Building Community with Nathalie de Vries
How can cities continue to foster strong communities amid rapid vertical development? In episode 3, Amy Guttman goes deep on this question with co-founder and principle architect at MDRDV, Nathalie de Vries, and uncovers the ways modern cities can learn lessons from the Dutch in modeling for their own urban growth.
Covid-19, Sustainability and the Future of Urban Design with Darren Comber
It’s clear that the Covid-19 pandemic has upended many aspects of our everyday lives. But what impact will it have on the future of urban design? What will our homes, workplaces and public spaces look like, and how can we continue to emphasize sustainability while adapting to consider the needs of public health?
We'll be tackling those questions (and more!) in episode two of Perspectives in Motion with Darren Comber, Chief Executive at London architecture firm Scott Brownrigg.
Unlocking Our Cities with Rahul Mehrotra
The U.N. estimates that 70% of our global population will live on 2% of the land mass by 2050. In this age of urbanization, the spaces around us pose both a challenge and an opportunity.
In episode one, we peel back the curtain with Rahul Mehrotra, Professor of Urban Design and Planning at Harvard Graduate School of Design and Founder of Mumbai and Boston-based firm, RMA Architects, to discover solutions for the biggest urban design challenges facing our modern cities.
Introducing Perspectives in Motion Season 1
Perspectives in Motion is an original podcast about the people, the places and the ideas that are shaping our lives in the age of urbanization. In season one, we’ll peel back the curtain on the inspirations of great designers, we’ll discuss just how much mobility and design support sustainability and public health, we’ll learn about vertical neighborhoods and how to build community in dense, siloed cities, and we’ll grapple with how the heritage of a place and its people can be retained in the midst of transformation.
The series launched July 13th! For more information, visit www.schindler.com/podcast.
Greetings from Los Angeles!
I’m going to start with a comment about “the final question.” I love that Guttman asks this in every podcast...wraps it up in a bow!
I’m not an architect but love the shape of a building and the decisions that went into it. When De Vries mentioned the decisions being made about future parking spots in Amsterdam, I thought, “Wow,” because that country is so advanced on its lack of dependence on the car. It made me wonder when architectural plans in LA would ever reduce parking spots...cant imagine the need reducing, but who knows! Loved this podcast...getting on the phone right now with my teacher-friend across town to talk about neighborhoods designed within urban housing dwellings...very cool!
Interesting and thought provoking
Excellent podcast! A great listen for anyone interested in learning more about urban planning. Amy’s thoughtful questions probe deep into a variety of themes (politics, history, art) and add richness to each interview. Will be listening to more episodes.
A Wonderful Listen!
Great insights about important urban initiatives and architecture from a global perspective. Incredibly interesting piece with perfect mix of historical and modern flare!
