We are proud to announce that our master’s co-director Carmen Mendoza will be speaking at he Cities to be Tamed? conference at Politecnico di Milano from 15th to 17th of November 2012. The international conference aims to simultaneously explore and question the role of urban planning, design, and policies in the continuous urbanization processes affecting the so-called ‘global South’.
The prestigious conference will host an impressive line-up of academics and practitioners from some of the best universities around the world, UIC being the only university from Spain to take part–and represented by our master’s co-director. Carmen’s talk, titled Socio-spatial Patterns: The Backbone of Informal Settlement Regeneration, will take place on the 16th within the session on Places of informality: Design principles.
CITIES TO BE TAMED? is curated by Spazicontesi/Contestedspaces, and promoted by Politecnico di Milano/ DIAP, Department of Architecture and Planning and School of Architecture, in collaboration with the Department’s Laboratory of International Cooperation. Download the program here.
