Every year, Polis Delft is organizing the Urban and Landscape Week. This event is an attempt to strengthen the connections to the field of Urbanism by understanding its routes, practices and contemporary issues, while trying to find its future possibilities. Urban and Landscape Week aims to form a platform for dialogue and discussion through a series of activities like lectures, workshops, exhibitions and symposium.
Dialogues for the Future is a three-day program scheduled between the 17th and 19th October 2016 hosted by TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences. It includes both an intensive competition and a series of lectures. The competition is conceived as an invitation to students from different disciplines to explore extreme future scenarios in a creative way, while the lectures will serve both as a theoretical support for the competition as well as an event of great interest for the general public.
