Dynamics of the Urban Age

Lse

Dynamics of the Urban Age was first developed as a Special Project for the 2016 International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. The exhibition describes the changing urban dynamics of global cities and focuses on how seven cities have changed over the last 25 years. It foregrounds individual narratives on how the physical environment has adapted to societal change and presents data on the urban dynamics that affect people’s lives. Alongside this, Urban Age research provides a comparative overview of how cities across the world are organized, planned and managed. It features a comparative snapshot of how different cities perform against a broad range of physical and social indicators.
