Great City, Terrible Place?' - the Indian Metropolis in the 21st Century

28 May 2013

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Venue:

RIBA, 66 Portland Place London W1B 1AD

Description:

India is poised for great things in the 21st Century. With China and South America, the sub-continent is predicted to emerge as the world's great economic powerhouse - a giant marketplace of people, materials, products and ideas.

At the heart of this change is its rapidly growing cities - places where people and cultures have come together for centuries, but also where overcrowding, poverty and lack of planning has created some of the most dangerous and disease prone areas in the world.

Are India's great urban engine rooms in danger of crippling its rise?

Panel discussion chaired by Sunand Prasad with:

  • Saskia Sassen - Columbia University, New York City

  • Tony Travers - London School of Economics
  • Yuresh Sinha - Yuresh Sinha Architects, Dehli

  • Vivek Nanda - Principal, Strategic Urban Design & Masterplanning AECOM, London
