Tuesday 02 June, 16.00-17.30, TU Delft, room R
On Tuesday 2 June, Jorge Peña Díaz (architect and professor on Urban Design at the CUJAE University of Havana Cuba) will give a lecture about the recent past and near future of the fascinating city of Havana, the capital of Cuba, entitled: Havana 2015 – Paths and patterns of urban development. The lecture addresses the current patterns of urban development in Havana, using the results of the project Atlas Urbano de La Habana (Urban Atlas of Havana). This project consisted of the mapping of Havana as a research tool in order to understand both the specificities of the current urban situation and the milestones it has followed. This analysis allows to understand the impact of the economic and political crisis of the 90´s in the urban structure of Havana. It also shows the fabric on top of which both internal structural changes and foreign factors have been and will be operating.
This international conference explored the current trajectory of African urbanization with insights from some of the most exciting voices in the field and serve as a platform to begin an open debate. Organized by the International New Town Institute (INTI), April 7, 2015 in Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
