Delphi Conversations V - Sustaining Culture and Character Inclusively in a Post-Pandemic World
Time: Wed 2021-06-02 18.00 - 19.30
Welcome to Delphi Conversations by the KTH Centre for the Future of Places
The future of our cities and the urban life has become more hotly debated than ever in the wake of the huge upheaval brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. Terms such as authenticity, culture, character, and uniqueness—already contested terms before the pandemic—loom large in creating the form of the evolved, inclusive city. But what do they really mean?
Join us as we discuss the culmination of the Centre's "Cities in Context" project, in the form of a new book, Sustaining a City’s Culture and Character (2021), that addresses how we can understand—or unlock— a public place, neighborhood, or city. We will address how the use of a new tool called LEARN (Look, Engage, Assess, Review, and Negotiate) provides an inclusive way of sustaining urban culture and character in transformative times.
