New working districts are evolving in major cities across the world, with hubs of talent and creativity taking shape beyond the center. How are the global cities, New York and London, transforming their neighborhoods to accommodate new ways of working?
With The Collective driving the co-movement in London at Old Oak Common and the Brooklyn Tech Triangle becoming a cluster of innovation in robotics and artificial intelligence, there is a convergence between how we live, work and play, but are we ahead of the curve or do we need to do more to ensure we are creating pieces of city robust enough to function for future generations of employees?
Center for Architecture host this tenth NLA NY-LON Simultaneous Seminar, joining Urban Design Forum as partners in the series which is a key part of the NLA International Programme, championed by KPF.
Breakfast will be served at 8:30 in New York, with the seminar beginning promptly at 9:00, while lunch will be served at 1:30 in London, with the seminar beginning promptly at 2:00. A live video seminar taking place simultaneously in both cities brings together speakers and audiences to foster cross-city dialogue and learning between London and New York.
