Cities - People – Places
3rd International Conference on Cities, People and Places (ICCPP-2015)
‘Towards a New Urbanity; Places for Urban Coherence’
The Department of Architecture of the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in collaboration with its international and national academic partners has organized the third International Conference on Cities, People & Places, scheduled to be held from October 26 to 28, at the Galadari Hotel in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Considering the time since the first European Urban charter adopted by the congress of local and regional authorities of the Council of Europe in 1992, our societies, culture and economies have radically changed. A new approach to urban living proposed by European Urban Charter 2-Manifesto for New Urbanity adopted in 2008, aims to enable the inhabitants of modern towns and cities to meet the contemporary challenges posed by the character and nature of major infrastructural, residential, commercial and manufacturing developments of the modern world. Therefore, the desire to restore the inherent reality of the actual city and the urban forms of the wholesome organic city is difficult to be fulfilled.
This conference invites urban researchers to interrogate the contradictions, examine the cities from an urban perspective, through multi-polar approaches of different disciplines. They shall also look into issues at a variety of scales from the territorial to the urban and from individual buildings, elements and places to the entire city and the assemblages of cities.
Topics proposed to be covered include:-
- Urban governance and urban coherence
- Place studies and character studies
- Spatial qualities of places
- Integrity and authenticity of place-identity
- Regeneration of urban places
- Urban history, preservation and conservation
