Tom Holbrook will be speaking at the forthcoming ’Transforming Peripheries’ Urban Land Conference in Ulm, Germany in September.
A large segment of Europe’s population lives outside the traditional city: in towns, in suburbia or on the urban fringes. To date this territory has not received the attention it deserves (see for example our provocation here).
The conference - organised by the Institute for Architecture and Urbanism at Biberach University - will investigate strategies for shaping these marginal territories, with input from policy makers, urban designers, business leaders, academics and community groups. Other speakers include AWB’s Joachim Declerck (Brussels), Interboro’s Georgeen Theodore (Brooklyn, USA) and Christian Schmid from ETH’s Future Cities Laboratory (Zurich).
The conference is on the 26 September 2019 - more details and registration here:
