The conscious cities podcast series focuses on the built environment industry in London. Right now London is at an interesting crossroads, a city organically developed over the centuries is contriving to become a mega-city. With that comes some teething troubles. In a 1-1 interview series, we’ll be speaking with interesting people deep in the real estate and built environment industries working on the city of tomorrow. We’ll try to identify holes in macro plans and great opportunities ahead that can be seized.
