Urban Age Shaping Cities conference held in Venice

18 July 2016

On July 14-15, the Urban Age “Shaping Cities” conference was held at the Teatro alle Tese in Venice. Hosted by La Biennale di Venezia in partnership with Habitat III, the conference focused on  how people, institutions, policymakers, investors and designers affect the physical form of cities, and how this impacts on the way we live in them. Jointly organised by LSE Cities at the London School of Economics and Political Science and Deutsche Bank’s Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, it was integrated with the 15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia (28th May – 27th November 2016), the world’s most high-profile architectural event visited by over 300,000 people.
The conference was livestreamed in English and Italian and all of its content – video, written and audio – will soon be available at urbanage.lsecities.net.
