Fellow Alain Bertaud was a guest on the RedBlue Expert Series podcast. The conversation covered topics including the role of humility for urban planners:
Your job is to really observe what [the residents] are doing, because they have different values. In a way, it is easier to work if you have this humility about culture. If you travel, you should have a switch and you switch off your culture when you move to another city. So, you have to respect what the people are doing in the private realm and try to serve it.
