Papers will be considered for several publications: with UCL Press, Taylor&Francis, Intellect Books and the journal Architecture_MPS. ISSN 2050-9006

Theme:

Every generation of architects, urban designers, planners and artists engaged with the built environment face a set of problems particular to their time. Today, Donald Trump promises investment in infrastructure, China continues to urbanize and pollute, global cities can be surrounded by slums and in many cities housing is unaffordable as a place of living while it functions as a major form of capital investment.

This interdisciplinary conference explores this complexity and contradiction by seeking critique and multiple perspectives from several disciplines: architecture, landscape, urban design and more.
