Growing the Future City: Urban Research Unit #9
After centuries of investment, trade, immigration and innovation, London is now driven by dynamic creative, knowledge and financial sectors. This discussion will explore how future models of development for our city can be are smarter, greener and designed for all levels of society.
Growing the Future City is the ninth panel event of the Urban Research Unit series, which was founded by Futurecity and Grimshaw Architects. The event coincides with the six-week-long exhibition of the same name in the Gallery at Foyles which runs from 28th May to 5th July. Growing the Future City seeks to address the issues facing our global cities and presents thoughtful solutions for building a more efficient, and enjoyable, urban environment. Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to contribute their own ideas on how we can make a city truly liveable, online and through a series of interactive walls.
