Oslo Urban Week 2021: Londonon around the world – Restarting the City
With a panel, and a live audience, in Oslo and London, this session is part of a series dialogues between cities around the world.
Victoria Marie Evensen, deputy mayor for commerce in Oslo, and Patricia Brown, Director of Central in London, will join in on a 13-hour city dialogue extravaganza. With a panel, and a live audience, in Oslo and London, this session is a part of series of dialogues between cities around the world.
We want to gain insights from both London and Oslo on the challenges and opportunities presented by Covid, and most importantly, how we can ensure that our cities can come back stronger and better after the pandemic. We are particularly interested in understanding what policies and programmes are being planned and implemented going forward. How will we ensure that city centres maintain their vitality in a world of home working? How can we ensure that the transition to Green mobility continues? What’s the future of the office, home, high street and beyond? What impact does this have on investments in infrastructure? Most importantly, this is a dialogue between cities, what can London learn from Oslo, and vice versa.
The panel will be introduced by Tomas Stokke of Haptic Architects, and the panel discussion will be moderated by Joe Morris of Morris & Company.
Londonon is a rolling research and residency programme in cities around the globe, run by collaborating London based architecture practices. Consisting of Haptic Architects, Morris and Company, Turner Works, Coffey Architects, Gort Scott and Mae, working in dialogue with emerging practices from London and beyond.
