An Equal and Cohesive City for All

Designing a new city is a complex task, especially on a different, un-discovered planet like Mars. In this podcast, key geographers Jane Jacobs, Edward Glaeser, Le Corbusier and Carlos Monero are going to have a discussion about what an ideal city on Mars should look like, whereby they pay attention to two key concepts within human geography: social cohesion and social equality. Within the podcast, the key concepts are explained from the viewpoints of the key geographers and through the concepts of walkability, mix of functions and skyscrapers. Let the discussion begin!
