On the occasion of the Aedes exhibition opening INTENCITY, by Jean-Paul Viguier et Associés, Paris
According to the 2018 Revision of the 'World Urbanization Prospects', 70% of the world's population will live in cities in 2050. With his 'IntenCity' manifesto, architect and urban planner Jean-Paul Viguier stimulated the debate about the working methods of urban design: How can an increasing population and the resulting density and intensity be conducted responsibly by city planners and architects? Jean-Paul Viguier and Martha Thorne discussed recent challenges and resourceful proposals to provoke a rethinking of today’s urban agglomeration development policies.
