WonderLabs with Chris Richardson

Dec 13, 2020

Charlotte Knight and Lloyd Preston-Allen currently spend their working days in architecture and property development. They have a strong joint interest in building community through design, which has engendered a rural coliving project tentatively called COLIVE-19.

In this episode we talk about how space captured their imaginations, the constraints imposed by formal education, and the relative value of aesthetic and function. We also discuss examples of good and bad cities, integrating culture with nature, and the future of urban living in a post-pandemic world—including their plans with COLIVE-19.

To dive deeper into the world of conscious urban planning, grab a copy of Jane Jacobs’ “The Death and Life of Great American Cities”. To find out more about COLIVE-19, watch this space.
