Gordon Price of the SFU City Program has announced an upcoming free public lecture, as part of the SCARP Symposium on Sustainable Planning, on March 12 at SFU Harbour Centre:
China and the Urbanism of Ambition
China is in the throes of the greatest building boom the world has ever seen. Its population is urbanizing faster than any in history, and its cities are expanding like supernovae across the landscape. In this lecture, urbanist and author Thomas J. Campanella will explore multiple dimensions of this urban revolution; probe its extraordinary physical and societal impacts; and speculate on what 30 years of wholesale urbanization might mean for both China and the world.
Date: March 12, 7 pm
Venue: SFU Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver
Reservations: Admission is free; reservations are required.
