Global Challenges | Local Solutions
Changes to urbanized regions in Southeast Asia affect millions of people. Populations grow rapidly. The physical and the social infrastructure have not kept pace with the demands imposed by these changes. Regional hubs, which were already big, are in the process of evolving into a new urban typology: The Megalopolis.
Our conference Global Challenges | Local Solutions will initiate an ongoing dialogue about the future Megalopolis within the design community throughout Southeast Asia, as well as partners from Australia and New Zealand.
The conference is held from September 19 to September 20, 2014 in Manila.
For the whole program of the Conference and further information visit our event page Global Challenges | Local Solutions.
