Ecological Urbanism

ハーバード大学GSD(Harvard University Graduate School of Design)で”Ecological Urbanism: Alternative and Sustainable Cities of the Future”というテーマのシンポジウムおよび展示会が開かれるそうです。





While climate change, sustainable architecture and green technologies have become increasingly topical, issues surrounding the sustainability of the city are much less developed.

As a consequence, the symposium is organized around the premise that an ecological approach is urgently needed, both as a remedial device for the contemporary city and as an organizing principle for new cities.

Ecological urbanism represents a more holistic approach than is generally the case with urbanism today, demanding alternative ways of thinking and designing that the symposium is being held to address.

The symposium will bring together design practitioners and theorists, economists, engineers, environmental scientists, politicians and public health specialists, with the goal of reaching a more robust understanding of ecological urbanism and what it might be in the future.
