We are excited to announce the 8th International Urban Design Conference will be held at the Sofitel Brisbane from the 16 – 18 November 2015.
The theme titled “Empowering Change: Transformative Innovations and Projects” will focus on inspirational changes in urban environments.
Across the globe cities are forming and re-forming rapidly. Progressive projects in cities around the world are addressing pressing issues of climate change, economic stability, social equality and sustainable resource use.
This conference will showcase these innovations and projects which embrace and create transformational change in urban environments, ranging from the modest but high impact idea to the new eco-city, from technological experimentation to multicultural cities, from the use of big data to physical city making.
The conference program will also include presentations on the operation of an Urban Design Practice, Industry Standards and the Urban Design Profession.
