Paul Rosenau - From Africa to Havana while Redefining Suburbia on the Way
Show Notes

On the podcast I chatted with Paul about growing up in a privileged school in Africa to then his culture shock coming back to Canada at age 17. We talked about his early days as an urban planner and how he learned how to run his company by doing what others didn't do. He travelled to Havana and photographed interesting faces in his studio as he fell in love with the city. His company is Ekistics and he has written a book of the theory of new urbanism. From explaining how business in China works to his love for motorcycle adventures, Paul's life is full of interesting stories and perspective.

Take a look at all his work, from Coal Harbour, to the depths of China.
