As part of the URBAN LAB+ project by TU Berlin, I’ll be heading to Chile over the weekend. The workshop, organized by the Xlab at IEUT (Instituto de Estudios Urbanos y Territoriales) of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, will look into the question of integrated public spaces in hopes of achieving inclusive urbanism.
Hope to post some ideas and observations from the workshop and around Santiago (maybe also on Twitter).
The two installments of the 2013 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture are soon opening in Shenzhen and Hong Kong.The exhibitions in Shenzhen open officially today, see more here.
Hoping to have a chance to drop by at one point or another. However, I am in some ways involved with the HK one which opens to the public on the 20th of December, so will post details later.
