With two-thirds of the world's population living in cities by 2050, the twenty-first century will be the urban epoch. How then will the city - the stage where numerous global forces play with and against each other - further develop? And who will bear responsability for its future?

 

POWER stakes out a role for a vigorous architecture by refocusing attention on the city's future.


“The perpetuation and increase in the empowerment of the INFORMAL communities, gives them permanent ownership of their destiny.” (Alfredo Brillembourg, 2007)
