Urban Innovations: Sustainable Approaches to Building Cities
Co-presented by the Great British Festival and in partnership with British Council and the British Embassy, ARTKITEKTURA presented ‘Urban Innovations: Sustainable Approaches to Building Cities’ at the Ateneo Law School in Rockwell.
The programme was welcomed by Deputy Head of Mission of the British Embassy, Nigel Boud, followed by a lecture by Dr. Tia Kansara on Rod Hackney, community architecture pioneer and founder of sustainable lifestyle firm, Kansara Hackney. The morning session also premiered “A Story of Dreams,” an inspiring film on architect and Curitiba community leader, Jaime Lerner.
The afternoon programme presented the forum “UrbanisMO: Ano ang plano mo?” (“What is your plan?”), which encouraged urban planners, data scientists, and citizens of all ages to discuss crucial issues that make or break Philippine cities.
