David Chipperfield will take part in the ‘Change in the city: Opportunities for architects in the New Urban Agenda’ conference taking place at the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) as part of the RIBA International week.

The New Urban Agenda was agreed at the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN Habitat) conference in October last year, and aims to guide sustainable urbanisation efforts around the world. This conference will consider the role of the architect in a series of discussions based around three key themes; housing, a cohesive society and cultural heritage.

Further speakers include: Dr Joan Clos, Executive Director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme; Ma Yansong, Founder and Principal Partner of MAD Architects; Saskia Sassen, Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology at Columbia University; Amanda Levete, Founder and Principal of AL_A and Suzanne Hall, Director of the London School of Economics (LSE) Cities Programme.
