This is Session 2 of 2 for Topic 2 in the 2021 Global Architecture Exchanges series: The Future of cities – Revitalising/reimagining cities post-Covid.
Topic 2, Session 2 was held on 28 July 2021. This session includes speakers from China, Rep. Korea, New Zealand, Ireland, the Netherlands and the UK.
Have cities become obsolete? Is there a need to rethink our cities and manage future pandemics? How do we design cities that are more multi-functional; providing good quality of life for residents (better places to live and work); are inclusive to all groups in society; and built for the future instead of for the upcoming decade? How has the pandemic affected the way we experience, think and design public spaces? How can we move biodiversity into designing cities that are more inclusive with nature? Our speakers explore these questions and more.
