LSE Cities hosts a wide range of free events in London and internationally.
6 September | A Place for All People
Book launch hosted by LSE Cities
Richard Rogers, one of the world’s leading architects and urban thinkers, discusses his life and work with architect Amanda Levete, director of LSE Cities Ricky Burdett, and British television executive and presenter Alan Yentob, to celebrate the launch of his memoir and manifesto for a better society, A Place for All People.
13 September | Innovation, Governance, Technology – are they connected?
Public lecture hosted by LSE Cities
As London confronts a post-Brexit future, is the government doing enough to attract, stimulate and retain the next generation of individuals and companies that will keep the capital growing? The founder of London’s most forward-looking accelerators, Second Home, and architect of the city’s innovation policy addresses these and other questions.
28 September | High Streets for All
Report launch hosted by LSE Cities, GLA and We Made That
‘High Streets for All’ is a research study commissioned by the Mayor of London and authored by We Made That and LSE Cities. The study takes one of the most commonplace experiences of the city – the high street – and uses the perspective of Londoners to understand its diverse economic, social and environmental benefits.
9 October | The New Urban Crisis
Book launch hosted by LSE Cities and the Centre for London
In recent years, the young, educated, and affluent have surged back into cities, reversing decades of suburban flight and urban decline. And yet all is not well. In The New Urban Crisis, Richard Florida demonstrates how the same forces that power the growth of the world’s superstar cities also generate their vexing challenges: gentrification, unaffordability, segregation, and inequality.
These events are free, but require a ticket. Ticket information is available on the event pages.
2 September – 5 November | Dynamics of the Urban Age
Exhibition by LSE Cities at the 2017 Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism
Dynamics of the Urban Age, exhibited at the 2017 Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, highlights the spatial and social consequences of dramatic urban growth in cities across the world between 1990 and 2015, revealing the complex patterns of urban growth, mobility, density, social inclusion, economic development, environmental impact and governance structures that lie behind cities as diverse as Mexico City and Tokyo, Delhi and Johannesburg, Istanbul and Seoul.
