Urbanism Online: #capital

Word Cloud
Location Info

You are invited to take part in a discussion on the role of citizen participation in urban design and architectural critique through social media and other electronic platforms. Our panel will discuss the evolution of the role of bloggers and how online discussion can contribute to the vitality of architectural discourse. They will also look at the implications for institutions and the ways in which we can work together. The panellists will also explain how we can engage these networks and discuss subjects that will have an important influence on our capital for many years to come.
