Conference Review: New Towns for the 21st Century: the Planned vs. the Unplanned City
4-5 June, 2009

Arnold Reijndorp moderates the discussion with the audience.

The conference on the Planned vs. the Unplanned City took place in Almere on June 4th and 5th. The two day event included lectures on many topics related to the subject of the planned and unplanned, including presentations by Urban Think Tank (Venezuela/USA), Claudio Acioly (Kenya/Brazil) and Anne Lacaton (France). Some of the presentations were more controversial than others, and the audience was always eager to debate the speakers during the discussions.

Many thanks to everyone who took part in this conference, and we look forward to seeing your next year!
