The next two episodes feature conversations with Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris, Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning & Interim Dean of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, and Karen Chapple of the School of Cities at the University of Toronto. These are two giants in the field of urban planning and innovative scholars in their approach to the study of cities. We will be exploring the pros and cons of transit-oriented development (TOD) as examined in their co-authored book Transit Oriented Displacement or Community Dividends? Understanding the Effects of Smarter Growth on Communities. In episode 4, we learn about the benefits of TOD along with some of the reasons to be cautious about this approach. Our guests share the creative research approaches they developed to study neighborhood change and to engage with communities as part of the research process. Co-hosted by Sherry Li and Joanne Jan, Yale SOM MBAs.
