SCIFI at SCI-Arc // Fall Symposium 2008: The City after the Economy

This event is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. The symposium will also be broadcast live at www.sciarc.edu/live. Please join us!

What is the status of urban growth and redevelopment in light of the current economy? What effects will the re-regulation of financial markets have on real estate, development, planning, urban culture and architecture?

Organized by SCIFI at SCI-Arc, the City after the Economy symposium will explore the urban consequences of the downturn as well as emerging urban design opportunities in light of the current fiscal slowdown.

A key ambition of this symposium will be to broaden the discussion of urban development from a singular conversation around of issues of capital and its movements to embrace the economics of cultural production, architecture, ecology and urbanism.
