IDEA OF THE EVENT

The future of cities is a critical issue to todays’ lifestyle. Now that more than half of the world’s population is urban, cities have transformations and decreasing the quality of life. Like living organisms, cities change: they grow and shrink, they flourish and decline.

New lives need new landscapes and new landscapes create new lives. How will our landscapes look like if we do not find solutions for the gaps? What will our future landscapes look like if we ignore the gaps which affect our environment and lives? Gaps are omnipresent, from those in our minds to those in physical space. But maybe the gap is an opportunity?
