Philipp Rode presents Resource Urbanisms research at ETH Zurich

8 September 2017

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. The project compares Kuwait and Abu Dhabi (a second Middle East comparator case) and two contrasting city types in East Asia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
