CREATING PURPOSEFUL CITIES
A talk about sustained quality of life through urban design and architecture.
What kind of city would you like to live in? What should it provide? How can the city contribute to your quality of life in a sustained way that is adaptable to changing demographics, societal and economic trends, as well as communal and individual needs?
Pascal, known for his innovative approach to architecture, will share his vision and approach to the importance of sustained quality of life through urban design, through examples of his work. Joining him in a panel discussion is Tomas Kozelsky, founding partner of KOGAA Studio (CZ). With the world's population increasingly gravitating toward urban settings, reaching 55% currently and projected to rise to 80% by 2050, the need for sustainable and adaptable cities has never been more crucial.
The event will delve into topics such as viable infrastructure, transportation systems, essential services, employment opportunities, affordable housing, and recreational facilities. Cornips and Kozelsky will emphasize the significance of incorporating sustainability and innovation into architectural practices, ensuring that urban landscapes remain relevant and purposeful for future generations.
