Talk of the Town #04: Inter-Act
The critical urban talk Inter-Act challenges the question of future city development in India and Germany. On one hand we see the enormous growth of cities like Bangalore while on the other European cities are struggling to stimulate growth thereby challenging municipalities, planners and even citizens, like never before. Furthermore the increase in the variety of stakeholders, economic pressure along with the complexity of land use patterns and the internationalisation of the building processes are compounding the issues.
Taking these in account the crucial questions are:
+ Who will build the city of tomorrow?
+ How to start?
+ How to participate?
Hence the talk will highlight how large-scale projects can give an impetus for social-economic infrastructures to be included and how city visions need crucial ideas in getting the process started.
When: 2nd February 2013
