Organized by Polis, platform for Urbanism, the third edition of Urbanism Week will take place October 8-11 at TU Delft; University of Technology, the Netherlands. A yearly conference, the event aims to understand the perspectives, practices and trends in the field. This year’s Urbanism Week explores the influence of big companies on the city and the design of urban lifestyles. Hoping to link students with the professional field, the four- day program will find new ways of approaching different infrastructure aspects and new practices dealing with the globalized world. This also includes new urban structures and new urban players are going to be designated. For more information, please visit here.

"Designing Lifestyles?" That's the creepiest idea for a conference I've heard yet. All the "Big Players" can keep their creepy fingers out of my lifestyle. People inhabit space, they make it their own. An architect who thinks they're designing a lifestyle is one heck of an arrogant power monger. Stick to designing buildings and leave designing the infinite variety of lifestyles to the people who live them, you creepy weirdos.

We chose for this theme, precisely because of this reaction: we want to start the discussion. Actually, big players have much influence how we live our lives, for example, how we commute, communicate, work etcetera. Besides this, a trend is visible in which big players as samsung, siemens and Ikead but also institutions like hospitals trying to influence the field of Urbanism. The symposium explores the reasoning behind this changes and looks for possible future developments and discusses whether or not this is a good development.

I hope they meant something else.
