Access to Resources – An Urban Agenda

Henrietta Palmer (ed.)

 

Book Launch 

November 27, 2014 from 1800-2200

Muralverkstaden, Kungliga Konsthögskolan KKH, Flaggmansvägen 1, Skeppsholmen, Stockholm

 

Through the framework of the scenario-thinking and research carried out within the Resources programme at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, Access to Resources embarks on a journey of understanding contemporary urban transformations in three cities – Shanghai, Los Angeles and Pune – each representing not only three major world economies, but three specific urban contexts. Looking beyond the crunch of climate change and depleting fossil fuels, the book brings together a multidisciplinary group of major thinkers and practitioners alongside Resources participants to offer scenarios and visions for a complex yet hopeful picture of an urban future in common.
