Episode 2: Decoding urban identity

In Episode 1, we learnt that thinking about cities as having DNA can help us all to participate in really important conversations about what makes each city so unique. This time, our fantastic panel of urban experts tell us what ​ingredients they would look for in the genetic code of a city and we are introduced to the idea that all places share certain qualities as they go through the process of urbanisation.
