STHLMNYC Inaugural Event
AIA CES: 1.5 LU
When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM THURSDAY, ARCHTOBER 30
Where: At The Center
STHLMNYC is a platform for collaboration towards an adaptive architecture. Our future is to a large extent unknown and uncertain. For our increasingly vulnerable cities to be sustainable, their architecture needs to adapt to unforeseen future events and developments.
The STHLMNYC semiannual seminar's overall theme is "Collaboration for Adaptation, Designing for Future Uncertainties" and will consist of two days of debates and workshops focusing on the urban environment of tomorrow. The seminar bring together specialists from all over the world to Stockholm and New York City.
The seminar’s adventurous explorations push the envelope of architectural thinking. The active collaboration of participating architects, landscape architects, urban planners, and related professionals, provides for a wide variety of ideas and visions that will trigger a new critical thinking in architecture.
