011: Thinking differently about public spaces

Read more articles by

This episode of Spacing Radio challenges listeners to think about public spaces in a different light. The first place we want you to reconsider is under your feet and under the roads – the sewer system. Spacing Radio producer Mieke Anderson goes exploring underground in Montreal. At the 4 Days conference in Halifax, the Spacing Atlantic crew got to chat with John Thackara, the former director of the Netherlands Design Institute and a globe-trotting booster of social innovation. And we discuss a unique project in Vancouver that converts roundabouts and curbside boulevards into blooming gardens. The musical guest is the glorious Montreal band Malajube.

  1. We’ve seemed to have fixed our feed into the iTunes store. If you want to get previous episodes that did download (006 and 010 seem to be the wayward shows), lauch iTunes, go into Spacing Radio’s listing of shows, and hit the *refresh* button in the bottom right corner.
