COMPLEXITY AND THE CITY – LIFE, DESIGN AND COMMERCE IN THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
America – Latin American Intersections.
Dates: 17-19 June 2020
Abstracts: 01 Dec. 2019
Place: CITY – University of London
2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Jane Jacobs’ The Economy of Cities. It came a decade after her seminal work, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, and heralded a new age in thinking about the city the world over.
The conference takes a global perspective of the city today and seeks specific regional critiques on cities in the Americas: their cultures, social make-up, physical traits; status as heritage and importance today.
The conference is expressly interdisciplinary and expects contributions from cultural theorists, historians, planners, architects, sociologists and more.
Pre-recorded and skype film presentation are available for delegates unable to attend in person. Pre-recorded presentations will be permanently available on the AMPS Academic YouTube channel.
