Today’s guest is Patrick Condon. Condon has over 25 years of experience in sustainable urban design: first as a professional city planner and then as a teacher and researcher. He started his academic career in 1985 at the University of Minnesota before moving to the University of British Columbia in 1992. He is currently the UBC’s James Taylor Chair in Landscape and Liveable Environments. Condon’s 2021 book “Sick City” is a call to action prompted by the crisis in our planned cities that the pandemic amplified. In “Sick City”, Condon brings the issues of race, inequality, and unaffordability to the forefront—illustrating how these ills can be traced to unequal access to urban land.
