Conflicts of an Urban Age

Thanks to Hermione for the tipoff to a new exhibition on cities at the Arup offices in London. 

These are on Fitzroy Street, just south from Euston Road.

The exhibition looks at the experience of modern cities.

The exhibition, jointly organised by LSE Cities and the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, highlights the spatial and social consequences of dramatic urban growth in cities across the world between 1990 and 2015.

Conflicts of an Urban Age describes how six cities – Addis Ababa, Istanbul, London, Mexico City, Mumbai and Shanghai – have changed over the last 25 years.

Alongside this, Arup will showcase a selection of inspirational solutions, developed and implemented by individuals, local communities or organisations at grassroots level, that address challenges posed by rapid urban growth in these six cities.
