Over the past six months, host Christoph has spoken to researchers from all across the Bartlett about many interesting things in Building Better: The Bartlett Podcast. 

We've learned that we live in a city that is fast, but also slow and that setting one's own speed is a privilege. That this city is filled with spaces that are more than they seem, some are safe spaces, others are not, and you can’t always tell if a space is private, especially if it’s open to the public. We learned that if you walk through London, like many of our researchers do, you can learn a lot about the history of the city through its buildings and, if you listen carefully, even the trees talk.
