‘’Today´s there is a lot of talk about sustainability,  SDGs, and the role of architecture and architects in creating cities that are equitable, livable, and sustainable. These pressures and others are causing a shift in our thinking about the role of architecture in the city,  the practice of architecture, and how to work responsibly both locally and globally.After a brief instruction about the current situation,  I will present what I consider positive options for the future.’’ – Martha Thorne

Gideon Maasland, director of MVDRV, is responsible for large and complex buildings at the renowned architecture practice. At the SHARE Forum he will give a keynote lecture “ Future cities “

 ‘’Is there still a future for cities? Is there a way to make cities more open, more porous, more sustainable, more social, more green? We will dive into these questions via the Porocity research at The Why Factory. Why are towers always straight extrusions? Via some historic projects of MVRDV, we will discuss Valley; a project that wants to push the ambitions of the future city. The last project will be Tripolis, in which we will discuss the importance of re-development of existing building.’’ – Gideon Maasland
