153: Is density the solution to affordable and inclusive cities? (guest: Naama Blonder – Smart Density)

Welcome to the 153. episode of Urbcast, in which we talk about: Is density the solution to affordable and inclusive cities? 🧐

Why should we talk about it?

Can density be the answer to many problems in face in cities? Could denser living be the solution? Let’s explore its potential to create affordable, inclusive cities by talking to an expert working with smart density worldwide.

Naama Blonder is an architect and urban planner from Canada. She co-founded Smart Density with a vision to redefine housing in growing cities like Toronto.

Naama challenges the issues of housing affordability and inclusivity by advocating the smart density approach. She collaborates with forward-thinking developers and innovative municipalities to establish vibrant and sustainable urban communities.

Some topics of today:

  • How does rapid urban change impact affordability?
  • Can families thrive in smaller apartments (size of a condo)?
  • What role does density play in urban development?
  • How do cost considerations intersect with Smart Density solutions?
