Today we are joined by Juan Mullerat and we find ourselves sipping a Spanish tempranillo with Juan and talking about New Urbanism and creating cities with a sense of place. Juan hails from Barcelona and brings a European perspective of urban design to the US. In this episode we talk about urbanism in Charlotte, NC, Greenville, SC and Miami, FL. We also talk about his work as an urban designer in China, the Middle East and Latin America. We discuss the importance of designing “complete streets” and the impact that street design has on commerce and human behavior. We also dive into affordable housing, minimum parking requirements, master planning cities and the Cuban Alps of the Carolinas.
