24th January – Three sessions of workshops and debates

NEW TOOLS

FOR CITY DEVELOPMENT

UNIVERSITETSAULAEN, University of Bergen

Towards an unknown future, cities are challenged by urbanization, migration, new economic landscapes, the creation of mega-cities, climate change, the fourth industrial revolution and much more. To meet these challenges, cities are in need of new tools – new tools that negotiates the crossover of architecture, design, finance, banking, technology and real estate. There is a blurred connection between these areas. We will during the sessions dive into important questions and maybe come some step closer to an answer.
