In this episode, The Urbanist, catches up with businesses “on the go”, from a travelling cinema in Vienna to the delicious food-truck craze in Paris. Plus: they hop on a houseboat in London that doubles as a record shop.
Vienna can teach other cities a thing or two about mobility: not only does it have well-organised and speedy public transport but also bike and car-hire systems – and travelling cinemas.
London: The Record Deck
The Record Deck is a fully functioning record shop, floating around London and the rest of the UK. We hop on board.
Paris: food-truck craze
In Paris, mobility is becoming increasingly important as riverboats docked on the Seine are now home to hotels, cinemas, libraries and theatres. But perhaps most prevalent in terms of mobility are the city’s food trucks, which first hit the scene in 2011.
At The Liveable City, organised by the Royal Danish Embassy, we sit down with Peter North, a senior manager at the Greater London Authority. Tune in to hear how he is advising the mayor on his plans to reach a zero-carbon London.
