Philipp Rode, Executive Director of LSE Cities, will be a featured speaker at the NEXT Design Perspectives conference in Milan on 29 October.
The conference, held at the Gucci Hub, is an exploration of the future of creativity and design. Rode will take part in a discussion on the theme ‘Mobility: the road ahead’, which will address the rise of new mobilities amidst the urgent need to tackle climate change. He also touched on the topic in Corriere, Italy’s most-read newspaper, ahead of the conference.
Along with NEXT Design Perspectives curator and director of the Design Museum of London, Deyan Sudjic, Rode also took part in a conversation on White City Place’s Thought Starters podcast. The episode, titled ‘How we’ll be getting around’, is a discussion between Rode and Sudjic on mobility at the intersection of rapid urbanisation and climate change.
