Urban Regeneration in London, Milan and Rome

2010–12 Three Cities in Flux: Urban Regeneration in London, Milan and Rome

Our current programme is an investigation into different approaches to urban renewal mainly in Italy and Britain. London, Milan and Rome will provide case-studies to enable a discussion of master planning in more general terms.

The programme will consider both opposing lines of thought within the international architectural community and different approaches to key events in the two countries.
