In a provocative lecture, Rudy Uytenhaak will address the problem of how to deal with explosive city growth as more people prefer to live in cities and larger spaces.

27 Feb 2014 6:30 pm

Uytenhaak argues that we should invest in attractive ‘cities full of space’: intensive, sustainable land-use that provides people with access and proximity to opportunity.

He promotes an architecture that organises the intelligent distribution of capacity + space by organising mass + void on different levels.

Instead of simplistic, quantitatively driven, high-rise visions, Rudy Uytenhaak advocates a mix of sky- and ground-scrapers. Such ground-scrapers with competitive economic densities enhance the qualities of the public realm and deliver child-friendly living environments for the new lovers of the city.

The talk will be introduced by A/Prof. Rod Simpson, Faculty of Architecture, Design & Planning, University of Sydney.
