The Changing Face of Urban Space
The global pandemic has made many of us think differently about the cities we live in. While lockdowns closed many of the amenities that make cities desirable, work-from-home orders showed us we can really work from anywhere. Hosts Shannon Murphy and Erin Shea are joined by equity researcher Jon Matuszewski, whose research shows that many city-dwellers are considering leaving for the suburbs – but will they really move?In this episode, we explore the future of our cities, and how the push-pull of urbanization will shake out over the coming years. What does the pandemic spell for the future of urban transportation? How can we safely return to the office – and what will the post-COVID office even look like? How can we take the lessons we’re learning from this crisis to build greener, healthier, more liveable urban settings?
