This episode focusses on the walkability of cities around the globe. We give you a small test to check your city, look at the history of the concept with Jane Jacobs and share some perspectives on Shanghai, Shenzhen as well as a bit of a critical look.
Thank you for your contributions and for supporting our vision!

The podcast “breaking paradigms” is a collaborative effort of Constanze Frech and Sarah Kusché. It focuses on all things spatial planning, especially regarding knowledge transfer and non-European practices and theories. Every 30-minute episode centers around a different topic and should give insights and perspectives on both theory and practice. Our goal is to be educational for those still studying and already in the professional field. We seek to collaborate with experts in their respective fields from all continents and build a platform to exchange niche subjects and start a conversation.
