How do we Live? London, Santiago, Shanghai-Suzhou is collaborative research and pedagogic programme launched by Jocelyn Froimovich and Johanna Muszbek in 2015 and looks at the current housing production spanning three continents. In collaboration with three universities, (University of Liverpool, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University) How do we Live? looks at housing types and the notion of crisis particular to each metropolitan context: Santiago (6.54 million people – 641 km2), London (8.78 million people – 1,569 km2) and Shanghai (24.15 million people – 634 km2). These cities have been randomly selected and offer a panoramic view into today’s global housing production.
With the goal of expanding our research, we have invited the following panelists to present their work on these three cities. Panels have been organized around the topics: “Crisis”, “Typology”, “Language Politics”, and “How do we live now?”.
The symposium will take place Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th of November, 2021 (14:00 through 19:00 CET) in person at the European Cultural Centre, Palazzo Michiel (Strada Nuova, 4391, Campo Santi Apostoli, 30121 Venice) and online via YOUTUBE.
For those wanting to participate of the panel discussions, we kindly ask to register for free via EVENTBRITE.
