The Quito Papers: Towards an Open City film now online

2 February 2017

Following closely on the launch of an early preview of the Quito Papers, a web version of the “Quito Papers: towards an open city” film is now available.  The film was first screened in Paris in December and earlier this week in London.

Theatrum Mundi launched the film in London on 31 January 2017 with the support of the Kaifeng Foundation and in partnership with UN Habitat, NYU and LSE Cities. The film includes contributions from Joan Clos, Under-Secretary General and Executive Director of UN-Habitat; Ricky Burdett, Professor of Urban Studies at LSE and the director of LSE Cities and the Urban Age; Saskia Sassen, Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology at Columbia University; and Richard Sennett, Professor of Humanities, New York University, Professor of Sociology, LSE.

In October 2016, the thinking behind the Quito Papers was outlined at Habitat III by the authors in a talk entitled: Designing the Urban Age.
