The Weather Report #7

(Rainlight Studio’s Yorgo Lykouria invited me to chat a while back for a series of conversations dubbed “The Weather Report.” The tastefully-edited black-and-white video is above, the description below.)

In this edition Yorgo Lykouria talks to journalist, urbanist, futurist, and speaker Greg Lindsay. They discuss how we can all live in a post-pandemic world, including European nations’ responsibility for refugees and the impact of global warming in areas such as the Pacific Northwest. The conversation explores moving from urban conurbations to more rural areas and the concept of the fifteen minute city. They discuss the idea of being able to live, work and play, all within a quarter of an hour, with examples cited throughout the world from Paris to Manhattan to Amsterdam. The pair also touch upon the impacts of infrastructure of the 15 minute city, from dark stores to shipping containers as food trucks.

‘Weather Report’ is a conversation series driven by healthy curiosity and a desire to understand the world around us through the lens of design. We’ll feature Rainlight’s Creative Director, Yorgo Lykouria discussing topics with a variety of industry experts, futurists, and creatives. During these conversations, we’ll explore the perspectives of these leaders and thinkers touching on what they’re considering right now. We’ll also touch on topics as varied as design for climate change, the future of cities, material innovation, and design education.
