Influx and Exodus: Two Conversations on Urban Density

Monday, December 1, 2014
On December 9th, from 7:30pm - 9:30pm, at the Van Alen Institute, a conversation will be held on sudden shifts in urban population.
 
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.
