On 27 February, in a provocative lecture, Rudy Uytenhaak will address the problem of how to deal with explosive city growth as more people prefer to live in cities and larger spaces. Uytenhaak argues that we should invest in attractive ‘cities full of space’: intensive, sustainable land-use that provides people with access and proximity to opportunity.

He promotes an architecture that organises the intelligent distribution of capacity + space by organising mass + void on different levels.
Instead of simplistic, quantitatively driven, high-rise visions, Rudy Uytenhaak advocates a mix of sky- and ground-scrapers. Such ground-scrapers with economic densities enhance the qualities of the public realm and deliver child-friendly living environments for the new lovers of the city.
The talk will be introduced by A/Prof. Rod Simpson, Faculty of Architecture, Design & Planning, University of Sydney.
