From the 15th to the 18th September 2015, Copenhagen will play host to the international RISING Architecture Week. For four days the city will turn into a sizzling melting pot of over fifty events, site visits, bicycle tours and debates throughout the city.
Among these events is a two-day conference where 500 professionals and visionaries meet to exchange ideas and discuss the theme Growing Cities. The conference has a venue for speaks, debates and interviews, and another venue for workshops, networking and innovation labs. "RISING gathers a very big, international audience of architects, developers and city planners, which gives professionals a unique opportunity to develop and exchange ideas across borders. I’m very much looking forward to participate in RISING this September," says Sergey Kuznetsov, City Chief Architect of Moscow and keynote speaker at RISING.
According to Jason Roberts: "I'm honored to take part in RISING 2015, and to share and learn with other civic innovators who are challenging the way we think of supporting the growth and vitality of cities and their public life. It's an honor to have the opportunity to come together in Copenhagen, a city that has inspired many of our block interventions, and to sit at the table among so many others who are passionate about exploring new avenues for enhancing the built environment."
