What are the strongest forces driving urban change? This is one of today’s grand questions and Dr. Chris Luebkeman is one of the leading minds to answer it. In this BLOXtalk, he will share his thoughts on the frightening and fascinating megatrends shaping our cities.
Today, we face upcoming challenges at a previously unseen scale – just think of massive megacities under water and the consequences of a rapidly aging population. As Global Director of Arup Foresight, Dr. Chris Luebkeman provides information on how to see and tackle such issues.
He has spent just about half of the past 20 years travelling the world to search out the weak signals and strong evidence of what will change our cities. From shifting demographics and emerging technologies to climate crises and a new economic world-order. His research always puts the human condition at the center, insisting that we can all take part in shaping the future.
Join us for an engaging afternoon full of future scenarios, inspiring stories and, of course, bubbly drinks. Admission to DAC’s current exhibition ‘Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design’ is included in your ticket.
