“Architect James Frazer Stirling’s work has resisted characterisation because of its radical shifts in influence, named by others as prewar modernism to Neoclassicism, Rationalism and Brutalism to Postmodernism. But the continuity of his thinking emerges through the stupefying quantity and variety of material in the James Stirling/Michael Wilford Archive, a tool for understanding an architectural practice of unusual complexity.”

URBAN PLANET will reflect on the urgency to affect change in urbanization practices when confronted with the context of unviable “territorial ecologies,” defined as spheres of sustainable interaction between humans and their environment. The guest speakers will shape an explicit understanding of different urban contexts examined via the lens of ecological viability and speculate open-ended alternative urban futures. . . . We aim to reveal the inner workings of emerging urban and demonstrate the inevitability of this discussion in our overpopulated and URBAN PLANET.
