The panel will share experiences over the development of urban landscapes and will highlight the mechanisms for creating and sustaining these spaces, including funding structures, participatory design, amd planning and design implementation processes, as well as various maintenance principles. With exemplary work derived from Mexico City, Bogotá and Medellín, proven practices that transcend the traditional boundaries of landscapes will impart valuable lessons by disclosing the innate relationship between urban development, geography, community engagement, and long-lasting cultural values. The presenters will share ideas and practices on new urban policy models that contribute to the wider city’s infrastructure, carefully integrating civic development for a renewed social environment.Buy tickets/get more info now
