Heatherwick Studio Partner and Project Leader Craig Miller will be speaking about the renewed need for distinctive public spaces as part of CTBUH’s The Post Crisis City 2020 on 17th November. This is one of the first live conference events for the building and construction industry in Singapore since the pandemic.
As great concentrators of humanity, cities are inherently on the leading edge of global challenges such as public health and climate change. Today, cities are fighting the battle on two seemingly oppositional fronts—how to maintain economic vitality and public health at the same time, without undoing the good work many have done to limit sprawl and encourage transit-oriented development. The very public spaces and transportation services that allow cities to properly function now operate at vastly reduced capacities, placing businesses and vulnerable populations further at risk of economic deprivation. The session, entitled Urban-Scale Responses in the Pandemic Recovery, will look at the cities that are rising to the challenge with unprecedented creativity, and the uncertainties that lie ahead.
This unique event includes live programming in Singapore at Capital Tower coupled with virtual content streamed in from London and Chicago to discuss the future of cities.
