Future Cities, Livable Futures


October 11-12 | Rome, Italy
& October 13-15 | Venice, Italy

In a hopeful post-COVID-19 world every urban context must reconsider what the future of cities will be comprised of and define what livable cities mean. Our understanding of health and wellbeing has been altered, our definition of safety has expanded, and our awareness of equity and access has moved front of mind. Our time together will delve deeply into each of these dimensions, hearing from experts and futurists driven by pragmatism and action. While in Venice we’ll be centered around the Biennale Architettura 2021 where we will explore new expressions of the future. On our final day, we’ll travel to Vetti Factory, where we’ll tour the factory and enjoy lunch and tasting at Le Monde Vineyards.
