International Urbanism Studio
February 11, 2015 @ 18:30 - 21:30 GMTFree
The UK is an international centre for urbanism, and its young planners, designers, architects and other urbanists are involved in projects all around the world. The experience from this diverse international work can inform our urban challenges in the UK, and vice versa.
The International Urbanism Studio, on the 11 February, will highlight some of the innovative projects Young Urbanists have been involved with in a series of Pecha Kucha-style presentations, and interactive discussion.
It will cover projects across a range of sectors and continents – and is a chance to explore international responses to urban challenges and the UK’s role in addressing these.
