Tim Stonor – Minister of Planning for Urbania?

Yesterday I took part in a role play in Dr Mike Hooper’s class on “Urbanization & International Development” at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. The class was divided into three groups and given 20 minutes to prepare proposals for upgrading an informal settlement on land in the centre of an imaginary city, “Urbanopolis”, the capital of “Urbania”.

Each team then had 5-6 minutes to present slum upgrading proposals to the (apparently) notoriously short tempered Minister of Planning for Urbania – played by me!
