Episode 5 – Belonging to our Cities: a Conversation with Urban Planner, Mustafa Sherif
In this episode, I sit down with Mustafa Sherif. He is the creator and host of the URBANISTICA podcast. He is also an Urban Planner working at AFRY in Stockholm, Sweden.
Mustafa was born in Bagdad and came to Sweden with his family at age 15. He received a degree in architecture and later when on to complete a Masters in Urban Planning and Design from the Royal Technical Institute (KTH).
This is a wide-ranging conversation with someone that has given a lot of thought to how cities should be designed and how do these decisions affect people. We cover a lot of topics including how he defines the concept of “home”, what makes a good city and how Urban Planning has changed over the years to become more inclusive.
