“The growth of cities and impacts of urbanisation form the most significant influence on development in the 21st century. Cities are the engines that drive our economy, but are equally important in shaping our social and cultural growth. We want this event to challenge conventional thinking and argue the case for new ideas for urban living. We want to start a conversation that continues and develops long after the event has finished.” Peter Klyhn, secretary, Ove Arup Foundation.
