How to generate an urban evolution?
The fast changes happening in Asian cities often leave open questions related to the quality of life in the new settlements, as well as issues related to preservation and lack of identity. Taking the city of Beijing as a case study, the discussion aims to find alternative urban planning strategies to address these problems.
Luis Aguirre, Giannantonio Bongiorno and Eugenia Murialdo will introduce “Hutopolis: city visions”, the exhibition that collects one year of research, experiments and events organised in China and Europe by the Hutopolis research program. “City visions” wants to explore how the re-use and enhance of the traditional city patterns could lead towards a new evolution of the city.
Nikolaus Wabnitz and Xu Feng will introduce LCD (Laboratory for Computational Design) and the recent research developed within the Dashilan Area.
