Strategic Urbanism

Where is the discipline of landscape architecture heading? The Topos Conference 2013 will immediately precede the Walk 21 Conference in Munich and will address the dominant trends for the coming decades. Discussions will focus on what will be needed in order to deal with the large complex and ever more frequent global challenges. Spatial planning alone will not suffice. Economic and political as well as socio-cultural proposals will be needed. Terms such as liveable cities and resilient cities describe a goal that will only be achieved by means of strategic and integrative planning. 

Registration open until 28 August 2013!

Lisbon 2-4 September 2013. Vertical Mobility in the city



International workshop

2-3 September, Lisbon, Portugal

Seminar on Vertical mobility: projects, benchmarking and innovation
– open to the public
4 September, Lisbon, Portugal

How to develop a geographically constrained space and which projects will match the diversity of routes? How to diversify the mobility system to cope with the building density?
Which access for users who also are part of a new social mix?
It is important to look differently at the infrastructure that should no longer be thought of as only a technical object to accommodate traffic flows but also as an object of architecture and landscape and as a social link.

These are the technical and planning questions and solutions that the INTA-Municipality of Lisbon workshop will explore during three days of reflection and design.
