Shaping the City
“Shaping the City: A Forum for Sustainable Cities and Communities” tackles contemporary urbanization and architecture approaches of architects, urban planners, scholars and policy makers from across the globe. The conference is to be held in-person over 2 days on the 15th and 16th of October 2021 with a lineup of speakers, panelists, different participants and guests. The event will be hosted in Palazzo Michiel.
It aims to inspire the next frontier of research focused on the structure of cities, resilience and climate change to urban and architectural developments and new building technologies as well as population displacement, livable communities, and health of cities. The forum is conceived to exchange ideas about the urban future of cities; a forum in a unique setting where city changers meet and network with other passionate, innovative, inspiring professionals and researchers.
Over the course of 2 days, Walter Mariotti (Domus Editor in Chief) will launch the event and four sub-themes will be addressed, discussed by the panel of experts and elaborated by a moderator.
Sub-themes for each panel include the following:
- Architecture for the People
- Re-imagining the City
- Building through Technology
- Climate Change and Resilient Cities
Ulrich Gehmann, director of Ideal spaces will be talking on the topic Re-Imagining the City.
