Our speakers include: Renzo Piano (Genoa and Paris) / David Mackay (Barcelona) / Nicholas Grimshaw (London) / Meinhard von Gerkan (Hamburg) / Niels Torp (Oslo) / David Chipperfield (London) / Gert WingÃ¥rdh (Stockholm) / Louisa Hutton (Berlin and London) / Adriaan Geuze (Rotterdam) / John McAslan (London)
The day's discussions will reveal the remarkable variety of built and unbuilt proposals for healing urban sores and scars and how to make the city a wondrous place to live in again. As Europeans (the people who invented the modern city), we can share experiences and ideas, and learn from the masters.
