M.Arch Jury Week Keynote Lectures (Housing & Urbanism)
Cities face profound urban regeneration challenges, often without a tradition of successful municipal urban planning. This leaves the domain of planning at the mercy of commercial developers who may or my not have the cities best interest at heart. The lecture will focus on three large projects, in Melbourne, Leeds and Leipzig, each straddling the boundary between private profit and public good.
