#29: Dr Hossein Sadri - De-Urban Design, Paradigm Shifts and Indigenous Knowledge
Show Notes

Dr Hossein Sadri is concerned with making the planet a better place to live and works as an activist, designer, writer, and teacher to create this change. He is the co-founder of De-Urban Design Studio; the design laboratory that reimagines human settlements as ethical, ecological, and equitable living habitats. He also teaches architecture at Coventry University.

We talk about:

  • The concept of De-Urban design
  • Why we need a radical paradigm shift to solve the challenges of climate change and ecological destruction
  • Thinking in the long term and building for multiple generations
  • And what we can learn from indigenous cultures.
