Creative Solutions to the U.S. Housing Crisis
Max Podemski is an urban planner, writer, and illustrator who currently serves as the Transportation Planner for the City of Los Angeles. Previously, he advised the President of the Los Angeles City Council on citywide policy regarding transportation, planning, housing, the environment, and the 2028 Olympics. He has also advised on development and public works projects. His work as a Los Angeles community advocate is also helping to refocus the car-centric culture on multi-modal transportation and transit-oriented development.

Podemski's book, "A Paradise of Small Houses," looks at both the history and the future of urban housing. He offers a blueprint for how time-tested urban planning models can help us build the homes the U.S. so desperately needs today. Podemski interrogates the American values that have equated home ownership with success which, in many cases, have led to some of the problems in the current U.S. housing crisis. His writing has appeared in the Guardian, Los Angeles Times, KCET, and others. He also runs an architectural print company called Polkela. Podemski holds a Master's degree in Urban Planning from Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation.
