Influx and Exodus: Two Conversations on Urban Density

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - 7:30pm

Rust Belt cities struggle to repurpose vacant land and adapt the delivery of fundamental services, and cities like Mumbai and Lagos sprawl ever outward with dense informal communities: In both cases, adapting to sudden population change presents a massive challenge. How can city infrastructure and policy keep pace with the dramatic shifts brought on by rapid growth and decline? 

This event builds on Van Alen’s Future Groundcompetition, which invites multidisciplinary teams to generate proposals to reuse vacant land in New Orleans. Looking at examples from around the world, we’ll discuss strategies for cities facing population loss in the wake of natural disasters or economic collapse, or a sudden tide of new residents coming from distant countries and rural villages in search of opportunity.


Tuesday December 9, 7:30-9:30 p.m.
