The university of Washington presents Next Eco-City, a symposium on Emergent Urbanism, April 7-8, 2011, at Kane Hall 120, UW Seattle Campus.
Next Eco-City will critically explore the relationships between environment, equity, economy and design in our rapidly urbanizing world; investigate the dynamics and implications of rapid urban growth in the emerging mega-cities of the global south; and examine emerging tactics and approaches that recognize the urban landscape as network of interconnected and spontaneous possibilities.
April 7 features a seminar with Kongjian Yu, Pierre Belanger and Karen Seto.
April 8 features a keynote lecture by Kongjian Yu and sessions on emergent Ecologies, Emergent cities and Emerging Tactics, with Jane Wolff, Andy Karvonen, Kirstina Hill, Jen Yocom, Chelina Odbert, Jennifer Toy, Viren Brahmbhatt, Alfredo Billembourg, Ben Spencer, John Bela, Nicolas de Monchaux, Denise Hoffman Brandt and Jeffrey Hou.
A pre-registration is required; no tickets sold at the door.
