Architecture and Urbanism Symposium Manchester 2012.
We live in an increasingly urban world where consumption is accelerating exponentially. Is a new approach required? One that looks towards a finite level of consumption, that addresses issues sustainably and improves how we consume.
Hosted by the students of MA in Architecture and Urbanism at Manchester School of Architecture, this symposium will look towards the future of our cities. On 3 May 2012 a wide spectrum of ideas, theories and practices of varying scales regarding an urbanism fit for consumption will be debated.
- speculative consumption
- symbiotic consumption
- natural consumption
- architectural consumption
- equitable consumption
- creative consumption
- global consumption
This is an all day event to be held at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation
The Symposium will begin at 10am.
