Play • 34 min

We’re sitting down with renowned urban planner, former Director of Planning for the City of Vancouver, and author of the books, Vancouverism and Ecodesign for Cities and Suburbs, Larry Beasley, to discuss how Vancouver became a model for city planning around the world. During the episode, we will be exploring how Vancouver focused on a "living first strategy" to attract large numbers of people to move downtown away from the suburbs, how the neighbourhood module was a prime structure for planning, and some of the challenges Vancouver still faces.
