Have you ever wondered how suburbs are designed? What makes that suburb a community? And the role that urban designers play in moulding modern Australia? Lucinda Hartley Co-Founder of Neighbourlytics.com, discusses these complex questions with our hosts. Lucinda and her co-founder Jessica Christian-Franks have led the global conversation on urban innovation, holding positions with global bodies the UN and the World Bank.

  • How do new suburbs and towns on the fringes develop?
  • What drives people to move out to these fringe communities?
  • How will Covid change the social dynamics of cities?
