Public Program:
Future Resilient Cities
May 20 2014
The city is becoming a platform for civic interaction, capturing the imagination of scientists, programmers, economists, designers, and artists. This seminar, designed to generate a cohesive, creative, and innovative urban language, features an interdisciplinary team of experts from Zurich, New York. and Singapore. Future Resilient Cities calls for the breakdown of boundaries between genres and disciplines, the establishment of new thinking and doing, and the collaboration of all concerned inhabitants. The arts and sciences no longer need to reside in their respective petri dishes.
The Seminar is part of the Zurich Meets New York Festival. It is presented by ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in partnership with the Center for Urban Science & Progress (CUSP) at New York University and hosted by IDEAS CITY.
