1·Lectures | Towards Mapping Urban Intensities | Ilze Paklone

The Urbanism lectures in the 1Lectures series coming academic year are addressing the point at which Amsterdam is at the moment – moving from a mid-size city to a metropolis. This has consequences on all levels of urban development from intensity to resilience, from economy to democracy and culture. In four lectures under the titles ‘Intensity & Flexibility’, ‘Economy & Autonomy’, ‘Ecology & Sustainability’ en ‘Democracy & Variety’ we will explore – with the help of a wide range of esteemed urbanists from abroad – how other cities around the world have been addressing the issues arising and what solutions or ideas could serve as a source of inspiration and become guiding principles for Amsterdam. 

As the first speaker on this subject, the originally Latvian architect and urban researcher Ilze Paklone tells us about the themes of intensity and flexibility, based on her experiences in Tokyo.
