Today, Donald Trump promises investment in infrastructure while simultaneously relaxing environmental regulations and targets. China continues to urbanize and pollute while industrial cities in the West continue to decline and ‘go green’. Internationally, global cities of commerce can be surrounded by slums and in many cities housing is unaffordable as a place of living while it functions as a major form of capital investment.
Building engineering, urban design, planning, architecture, landscape architecture and the social sciences. The conference is interdisciplinary and seeks to bring diverse perspectives, from engineering to art and design. The conference will be organized in appropriate strands.
