Partner News: University of Washington

Next Eco-City: Emergent Urbanism Symposium




The University of Washington presents Next Eco-City, a symposium on Emergent Urbanism.

April 7 – 8, 2011
Kane Hall 120
UW Seattle Campus

Pre-registration required; no tickets sold at the door.

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, Kristina Hill, Ken Yocom, Chelina Odbert, Jennifer Toy, Viren Brahmbhatt, Alfredo Brillembourg, Ben Spencer, John Bela, Nicholas de Monchaux, Denise Hoffman Brandt and Jeffrey Hou.
