Food Shaping our Cities
As some of you may know, two of my great passions are the design of the urban environment and local food. Every day, in a city the size of London, 30 million meals are served. But where does all the food come from? Architect Carolyn Steele discusses the daily miracle of feeding a city, and shows how ancient food routes shaped the modern world. It's a timely message and cuts to the core of how we have got it so wrong since the dawn of the industrial age.
