Admission: Free. Registration not required.
In the run up to IABR–2014–URBAN BY NATURE– and in association with the IABR–Project Atelier BrabantStad the IABR has invited Alan Berger (Professor of Landscape Architecture and Urban Design at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Director of the MIT Centre for Advanced Urbanism) to lecture on the profound innovations he thinks are necessary in the field of urban planning and design if we want to foster sustainable development. What new perspective is needed to truly understand the workings of our urban environments? How can we go beyond definitions such as city and landscape, and develop a new idiom and better performing tools for action? And what does this mean for urban planners and architects?
IABR–Project Atelier BrabantStad (a collaboration between the IABR, the province North Brabant, the municipalities of Den Bosch, Eindhoven, Tilburg, Breda and Helmond and the water boards of North Brabant) searches for the strengths that lay hidden in the urban tapestry of Brabant.
