CNN did a panel discussion on Fareed Zakaria GPS talking about the future of cities. It included Joel Kotkin, Bruce Katz, Jennifer Bradley, and Leah Gallagher. Here’s a video of the segment. It likely won’t display in RSS, so click here to watch if not.
On Urban Demolitions
I’m surprised that Monocle magazine appears to be all but non-existent in the US urbanist discussion world. Perhaps that’s because they paywall most of their content. However, they’ve got a free internet radio station called “Monocle 24″ that has a weekly hour long program called “The Urbanist,” generally featuring themed episodes. Last week’s theme was demolition, when it’s appropriate and when it’s not. I’ll embed the audio and if it doesn’t display for you, click here.
