Curious: UO's Urbanism Next Center Looks For The Next Cities


By several estimates, somewhere north of 80% of the American population lives in cities or otherwise urban areas. Cities are famous for rapid change, and COVID-19's effects on people and their habitats underscored that further.

The Urbanism Next center at the University of Oregon brings together researchers from a number of different fields to consider what the future of cities might look like, and what forces will shape that future.

Nico Larco is the center director. This month's edition of Curious: Research Meets Radio brings Larco to the JX for an overview of the center's work.
