Book Launch, The Amsterdam Agenda!
The Amsterdam Agenda – 12 Good Ideas for the Future of Cities
Architect Daan Roggeveen and journalist Michiel Hulshof met in Shanghai in 2009. Ever since, they have been collaborating on urban research projects around the world. Tuesday 11 February, they will launch their new book ‘The Amsterdam Agenda – 12 Good Ideas for the Future of Cities’ in Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam.
Inspiring visions and sharp opinions by a new group of international specialists
In a program full of stories, Roggeveen and Hulshof will share lessons from 11 years of research, exhibitions and designs in China, Africa and Europe with the audience. And they’ll show what these lessons mean for Amsterdam.
What can one learn from a brand new homeowner in Nairobi? Is it possible to construct a Special Economic Zone in the Netherlands, following the Chinese example? How does one gain the trust of 12 taxi drivers? Answering these unexpected questions, Roggeveen and Hulshof explain how insights from around the world can be relevant for anyone working on urban development projects in the Netherlands.
At the end of the evening they present The Amsterdam Agenda, their latest book based on the lecture series they organized for the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture.
The book discusses urgent topics including affordability of housing and the future of work
About the The Amsterdam Agenda
From climate change to migration, all across the world cities are having to come to terms with contemporary challenges for which there are few easy answers.
The Amsterdam Agenda – 12 Good Ideas for the Future of Cities invites 12 urban thinkers to share their knowledge, insights, and vision for the future of cities in light of today’s ongoing transformations. Be it the repercussions of over-tourism, alternative forms of civic engagement, or incorporating new technologies into existing infrastructure, these are urgent issues with global impact.

Construction Product Leader’s Summit, Birmingham, West Midlands, England, UK
13th February 2020, 9:30am-4:15pm
IET Birmingham: Austin Court
• Dame Judith Hackitt, Government Advisor will deliver a keynote speech on how construction needs to improve both its culture and approach to building safety
• The core focus of the summit will be on the power of digital data and the benefits it can deliver for building products manufacturers
• Advisory sessions will cover topics including the ‘golden thread of information’ and the practical steps manufacturers can take to profit from the new digital economy
• Michael Saunders, Bank of England MPC Member, and a leading e-commerce expert will share insights on the lessons learned from other sectors that have already gone through periods of sustained digital transformation
On 13th February 2020, NBS, the leading specification platform for the construction industry, will bring together policymakers, industry experts and decision-makers in construction, economics and digital transformation for The Construction Product Leaders’ Summit. The construction sector is lagging behind other industries when it comes to technology adoption, which is why the event will specifically highlight lessons learned and efficiencies gained in other sectors which have experienced sustained periods of technology transformation and disruption.
For the keynote speech, Dame Judith Hackitt, Government Advisor, will share her ideas for creating a new national building safety regulator and explore the role manufacturers can play in shifting the construction industry towards more stringent standards.
Michael Saunders, monetary policy committee member at the Bank of England and the leading e-commerce expert will use their experience in economics and digital retailing to highlight lessons learned from other sectors that have gone through rapid digital transformation.
Other pressing topics on the agenda include: the current unsettled economic landscape, the government’s drivers for construction sector change and opportunities presented by digitisation to transform the industry.
The concept of the Golden Thread of Information will be covered in a Q&A session. Attendees will discover how the supply chain should be fully integrated into this concept to increase transparency, visibility and profitability. The speakers will also deliver practical advice on the steps manufacturers need to take to digitise product data, processes and workflows. Furthermore, a leading e-commerce and retail expert will recount their experiences and share the challenges they faced on their journey.
Richard Waterhouse, Chief Executive, NBS, says, “Technology is an enabler and yet construction hasn’t yet realised the opportunity. Sensible adoption can drive up standards, reduce mistakes and save costs. The sector hasn’t yet realised the pace and scale of change coming down the line. The industry will be impacted from three directions, the new safety regulations, as well as the proposed housing and infrastructure programmes. Acting now can give your business a competitive advantage.”
He continues “Product manufacturers are going to be a key part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a better Britain. Dame Judith Hackitt is a force for change within our industry and with her clear focus on making sure homes are safe and fit for habitation, she will be an electrifying and rousing speaker.”
Concluding, he adds, “The Construction Product Leaders’ Summit will provide attendees with inspiration and practical guidance to equip them for the future.”

Concrete Elegance: World Class Performers, London SW1V 1HU, UK
Tuesday 4 February 2020
An evening celebration of recent exemplary concrete architecture.
The projects featured at this Concrete Elegance lecture are described as world-class facilities in their specialist fields of dance and medicine: the new English National Ballet and The Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. The buildings both use low carbon concrete and thermal mass to reduce energy use.
The new home for the English National Ballet, located on London City Island, is designed by Glenn Howells Architects. The building is the ENB’s workshop, a place where it can rehearse in a production space on the scale of where it will perform, as well as providing seven further studios and medical facilities.
The in-situ concrete is a 50% ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBS) mix and is a mid-grey to match the colour of the precast concrete studio soffits. Three different finishes were used throughout the building to achieve the aesthetic, cost and performance requirements.
The Zayed Centre, at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, is the world’s first purpose-built centre dedicated to paediatric research into rare diseases. The new facility, designed by Stanton Williams Architects, is organised around two connected ‘hearts’, an outpatient zone and a research zone, each planned around a daylit atrium.
Speaking at the event will be project engineers and architects, who will shed light on the design and construction development, with a specific focus on the use of concrete, specification and detailing.
6.30pm – 6.35pm: Welcome Presented by Elaine Toogood, The Concrete Centre
6.35pm – 7.15pm: English National Ballet Presented by Dan Mulligan, Associate, Glenn Howells Architects and Martin McGrath, Deputy Group Managing Director, OCSC Multidisciplinary Consulting Engineers
7.15pm – 7.55pm: The Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children Presented by Gavin Henderson, Principal Director, Stanton Williams Architects
7.55pm – 8.00pm: Audience Q&A
8.00pm – 8.45pm: Drinks reception

Curating the city
A network of art, architecture and nature
Curatorial events in European cities
Download the full programme.
Bologna, 12 December 2019
DAMSLab, Sala teatro 11:00-18:00
Organised by Annalisa Trentin, Anna Rosellini, Amir Djalali
Since the end of the 1970s, exhibitions, museums and artistic events have gained a central role in shaping the transformation of the city. Art, culture and knowledge have become the instruments through which cities have faced the crisis of industrial economy and the rise of new paradigms and values of urban development, often hand-in-hand with processes of financial speculation and the intensification of social inequalities.
Today, artistic practices, with their immediacy of means, their capacity to mobilize images and affects and their organisational structure, seem to have transformed the way in which cities are planned and built. What is the relation between art, artists and the city? How are artistic events transforming cities? Are curators the new architects and urban planners? Beyond the unmet promises of the “creative city,” can curatorial practices become forms of care for our cities?
On December 12 we will discuss these issues with curators, scholars and artists such as Luca Galofaro (University of Camerino/Orléans Architecture Biennale), Andres Jaque (Columbia GSAPP/Manifesta), Sébastien Marot (EAVT Paris-Est/Lisbon Architecture Triennale), Marina Otero Verzier (Het Nieuwe Instituut/Oslo Architecture Triennale), Angela Rui (Design Academy Eindhoven/Design Biennale Ljubljana), Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli (Office for Metropolitan Architecture), Roberto Pinto (University of Bologna), Marina Reissner (Milano ArtLine), Léa-Catherine Szacka (University of Manchester), Elena Vai (University of Bologna/Bologna design week), Francesco Volta (Municipality of Bologna).
The Symposium is organised parallel the launch of the call for paper “Curating the City,” The European Journal of Creative Practices in Cities and Landscapes, vol 3, no 1.
The call for paper can be accessed here.
Deadline for full paper submission, 15 December 2019.
