The Urbanist

The Urbanist is a weekly podcast about what makes cities work or fail.

The website is exceptionally user friendly, with each podcast divided into chapters for ease of selective listening. Episode #243 ‘Legacy’ discusses good urban design, explains the architecture connection between Macedonia’s capital and Japan’s Hiroshima, examines Vienna’s Nazi past and looks at urban regeneration in London. Episode #237 ‘Density’ asks: how do you tackle overcrowding without expanding a city’s footprint? Episode #230 ‘Downunder’ looks at the renewal of Melbourne’s docklands, profiles the city of Canberra and explores the urban design of William Street in Sydney. With so many archived episodes, and easy streaming straight from the website, this is a great resource, featuring architects and designers from all over the world.
