Conference on urbanism and vertical density in Hong Kong

A two-day international conference on vertical density and the public dimension of livable cities will explore how the vital concentration and growth of global cities can be balanced with an enlargement of the civic realm.

The conference will also look at how the essential character and cultures of a place can be promoted, and how government and private interests can work together to create, maintain, and celebrate a positive public dimension. Vertical Density: the Public Dimension will bring together government and city officials, developers, planners, and architects from Hong Kong, New York, and Shanghai on the comparative architecture, urbanism, and public space over two days - January 21 and 22, 2010 - in Hong Kong.

Organised by the Hong Kong SAR Government and the Shanghai World Expo 2010 Executive Committee, and presented by the Hong Kong - New York Urban Exchange Group, AIA Hong Kong, and The Skyscraper Museum, the conference is the second of an ongoing exchange between the world's great skyscraper cities.
