Save Event: Conflicts of an Urban Age

People who have saved this event:


Cities occupy less than 1% of global land, but generate over two-thirds of the world’s economic output. They are the stage-sets for social opportunity and social inequality.


While some cities are pioneering sustainable and imaginative solutions, many are not. New city forms are also emerging, with profound social and environmental consequences for billions of urban dwellers.

The Urban Age, a research project jointly organised by the London School of Economics LSE Cities and Deutsche Bank’s Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, has been exploring the conflicts that lie behind this new urban reality. This exhibition was first developed as a special project for the 2016 International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. Within this iteration of the exhibition, as a new element to the project, Arup is showcasing a range of inspirational solutions, developed and implemented by individuals, local communities or organisations at grassroots level in different regions of the world, that address challenges posed by rapid urban growth.
