In one of our favorite episodes yet, we sit down with Ellen Dunham-Jones; architect, urban designer, educator, author, podcast host, viral TED Talk host…the list goes on!
We cover a lot of ground with Ellen during this episode, including the adversities she faced as one of the few women in her architecture program, what sparked her interest in “retrofitting suburbia,” and how autonomous vehicles will change the future of cities. We also discuss how COVID has impacted the public realm and her favorite mode of transportation (hint: it has two wheels). Join us in this thought-provoking conversation with one of our role models in the design industry - it’s an episode you don’t want to miss!
