Urbanization is more than the growth and physical expansion of cities. It is a process that transforms territories, changes existing reciprocities and establishes new relationships between different places. In the Shadow of the Megacity will address the wider impact of urbanization, both within and beyond the city, in an attempt to trace the present contours of the urban and imagine its future.

In the Spring, a group of scholars, officials, and practitioners gathered on Cape Cod to discuss the implications of urbanization in rural settlements, focusing on questions of land use, housing, infrastructure and ecology. We are now carrying the discussion to New York to continue the conversation and consider the agency that architecture and design may have in relation to the processes of urbanization.

Following presentations and a panel discussion with Susannah Drake, Dietmar Offenhuber and Alexander D'hooghe, a keynote conversation will be held between Kenneth Frampton and Stan Allen. For more information and an overview of our Cape Code symposium please visit http://intheshadowofthemegacity.blogspot.com/.
