The Centre for Global Heritage and Development (Leiden University, Delft Technical University and Erasmus University Rotterdam) and VU Amsterdam research institute CLUE+ cordially invite you for the next Re-Scape Colloquium on November 10 at the Faculty of Architecture in Delft.
Guest speaker is Richard Sennett. Richard Sennett is a professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics and visiting professor of architecture at Cambridge University.
His talk is called “The Open City”
Cities should open up opportunities, connect people to new people, free us from the narrow confines of tradition – in a word, the city should deepen experience. But modern cities work the opposite way: urban inequality restricts opportunity; spatial segregation isolates people into homogeneous class, racial and ethnic groups; the public spaces of today’s cities are not places for political innovation. In his talk, Richard Sennett explore ways to open up the city so that place matters more.
Date: Friday November 10, 15.00-17.00
Location: Berlage Zaal 1, Faculty of Architecture, Delft
Please feel free to forward this invitation! Registration is not required.
