How to Design Future-Proof Cities?

Caroline Bos, a Dutch urban planner and the Co-founder of Amsterdam-based architectural design network UNStudio that designed very influential projects, e.g. the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam and the new transfer hub, Central Station in Arnhem. At the reSITE 2017: In/visible City conference, she raised significant questions, and she came up with eye-opening ideas on how to design future proof cities. She argues that resources are wasted in systematic, structural ways. So how architects can design for a circular economy? How can architecture and urban planning design future cities that are inclusive, foster co-creativity and create joint-value? Listen to her lecture, and learn more about how UNStudio incorporates the ideals of a circular economy into their design processes.
