Constructing an Urban Future

  • About

    The conference is co-organised with AMPS

    Conference dates: 18-19 March 2018
    Abstract submission deadline: December 01, 2017
    Delegate fee: 350 USD

    In 2014 the World Urbanization Prospects published by the United Nations identified that we had already crossed the tipping point at which the majority of the peoples of the world live in cities. By 2050 it is expected to be 66 per cent of the world’s population. Already in many parts of the world, urban living is the dominant mode of existence.

    What this means for how we design and build the habitation centers of the future is fundamental. The homes we live may need to change as the density of life increases; our places of work may need rethinking as the home to work commute becomes impossible; minimizing the environmental impacts of travel in denser and expanded cities will be essential; the planning of infrastructures to supply basic needs such as water will be on the agenda; energy consumption in both the domestic and industrial sectors needs control.

    Not only are these problems complex due to the interconnected nature of every issue at play, they are further complicated by the diverse scenarios we need to consider from a global perspective.

    This conference embraces this complexity and the need to bring minds, disciplines, researchers and professionals together, rethinking the range of interconnected issues involved in the sustainability and reliance of our urban environments.
