Connections: How to plan and design a "just city"

What does a "just city" look like when it comes to urban design? It's a question Toni Griffin of the Harvard Graduate School of Design explores in her work. She leads the Just City Lab, which "examines how design and planning contribute to conditions of justice and injustice in cities."
