310. Think Like Pirates & farmers' markets - Richard McCarthy

Season 3, Ep. 310

Richard McCarthy (Captain at Think Like Pirates, Brooklyn, New York, United States)


I asked Richard the following questions:

- Tell us more about the Market Cities concept.

- The unexpected rise of civil society-led farmers' markets (addressing the question of who runs them, why, and why does that matter?.

-In relation to places where traditional markets and municipal markets may have long existed. Is there room for more markets and why?

-How about the E-market? the digital market, does it exist? does it mean less physical market?

-Does really food link together communities on a bigger scale? or it's just linking a few people?

-What are the main challenges that food markets are facing now?

-How can city planning serve these markets?

-There is a trend now about introducing urban farming on a small scale, do you think we can scale it up? how do we do that?

-If you picture a future city from a food market's point of view, what do you see? based on what we have now.


Keep Up the Good Work. Keep Loving Cities ❤️️

327. Making places for children - Tina Govan

Season 3, Ep. 327
Tina Govan (Principal at Placemaking Studio, Raleigh, North Carolina, United States)I ask Tina the following questions:-Tell me how did your interest in this topic start?-can you tell us more about why you documented your kids' "creek life"?-Tell us more about Placemaking Raleigh www.placemakingraleigh.com-How can architects think more in terms of making places instead of objects?-Why do you feel social isolation where you live in the US?From Tina to the listeners.1- “Nobody builds alone:When you do something large, leave the small to others,When you do something small, enhance the large.”-John Habraken( NOTE: I keep the entire longer poem above my desk as a reminder. I can send it to you, if you are curious.)2-That we are all placemakers. “Birds do it, bees do itEven educated fleas do it”When you set a table, have a picnic, grow a garden, throw a party, furnish your home. We are all always doing it, whether we are aware of it or not. We make places happen at all scales, from your body and how you dress to your house to your street and radiating out into the community. Find and fully express the inner placemaker within you. Care for and inhabit your world. The amount of joy and community connection, and sense of belonging, that will come your way will be surprising.Keep Up the Good Work.
