The University of Washington College of Built Environments presents Next Eco-City, a symposium on Emergent Urbanism April 7th and 8th. 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.
Featuring a keynote lecture by Kongjian Yu, the symposium also includes the following professional participants: Pierre Belanger, Karen Seto, 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.
The symposium will be held in Kane Hall on the UW Seattle Campus. Pre-registration is required. See conference details here.
