"To Be" Lecture Series - THE BIG THINK - Round Table on China's Urban Regions @Shenzhen
The Big Think is a high-profile panel discussion and symposium on the future of the city and large-scale planning in Asia.
The Big Think是一个讨论城市未来和亚洲大规模规划的高规模专题圆桌论坛及研讨会。
The future is building in the east. As the world urbanises, much of this growth will take place in urban clusters, such as the Greater Bay Area or Yangtze River Delta, in which rapidly developing cities have aggregated into increasingly integrated and networked urban agglomerations. Cities in rapidly urbanizing regions fiercely compete for amenities, infrastructure and space. The very planning instruments that facilitate their development, also fuel sprawl, land fragmentation, resource scarcity, ecological devastation and contribute substantially to global carbon emissions. As mono-centric cities rapidly morph to form multi-nodal systems, what are the planning models that can be applied to facilitate integrated development? It is essential to develop a model of rapid urbanisation that moves beyond a self-contained nodal understanding to an integrated model of regional urban planning and design.
In contrast to stratified and formula-based approaches to planning and urban design, Big Think is a way of approaching cities as dynamic, evolving and complex systems. The Big Think will provide an international platform for urban thought leaders to develop new models of urban design and planning for future cities.
与分层的、基于公式模版的规划和城市设计方法不同，Big Think将城市视为动态、发展和复杂的系统。Big Think将为城市思想领袖们提供一个为未来的城市设计和规划开发新模型的国际平台。
The event will be organised around three sessions, which focus around key issues of urbanisation with the ambition of developing a critic tool set for approaching city making in an era of networked urban agglomeration.
Session 1: Urban Edges // 第一部分:城市边缘
As cities expand through population growth and the expanding influence of capital, what are the mechanisms through which we manage and control growth? As cities expand and bleed into rural areas, how do we mediate the relationship between urban and natural environments. How can and other models of design and planning envision cities as an integrated rural-urban system?
Session 2: Critical Density // 第二部分:临界密度
The cities of the future must be dense, consolidated and compact. Urban densification is the single most powerful urban response to climate change. What are the instruments that deliver urban density? Who are the key actors, protractors and detractors operating in this space, and how do we provide vibrancy, diversity and difference to create desirable density in our urban environments.
Session 3: Exchange Cities // 第三部分:城市交换
Cities are open systems fully reliant on a broader global network of resource and information flows. Urban environments operate as a dynamic field of interrelated elements, both physical and virtual, that are in a constant process of flux and change. How can planners and architects engage with the urban, economic, social and environment systems that organise the city? How can we invent innovative tools and techniques to mediate and managed complex and uncertain site conditions. How will this shape the future of our cities?
