Seminar - Changing perceptions of the city

From Lewis Mumford’s pathfinding work on the modern city, to Gottmann’s Megalopolis and Jane Jacobs’ celebrated examination of this dominant organism of modern civilisation, the city has been in the forefront of politics and planning. Sydney has spawned the commercial hub of North Sydney, which has more floor space than several State capitals, and the Greater Sydney Commission is now plugging the unusual idea of a multicentric city (unknown to London, New York or Delhi), with special attention to Parramatta. Three speakers will give us the view of their organisations on what the future may hold for the development of Sydney in the next 50 years.
