Philipp Rode, Executive Director of LSE Cities presented “Resource Urbanisms: Natural resources, urban form and infrastructure in the case of Asia’s diverging city models” at ETH Zurich’s Future Cities Laboratory on 7 September 2017. Resource Urbanisms is a two-year LSE Cities research project co-funded by LSE Kuwait Programme/LSE Middle East Centre that examines multiple aspects of how natural resources, urban form and infrastructure affect each other and potentially lead to the establishment of divergent forms of urbanism.
