Daan Roggeveen of the Go West Project will give a lecture on Friday, October 5 at 5pm in Pence 209.
Go West Project is a multidisciplinary research and design studio that studies emerging megacities and uses that knowledge for urban design. We have a deep interest in urban cultures and want to understand and contribute to them through research, architecture and media.
Go West works in an international network of writers, designers, architects, researchers and journalists and has offices in Shanghai and Amsterdam. Clients of Go West include governments such as the City of Amsterdam and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment, organisations such as the Shenzhen/Hong Kong Biennale, venues like the Gopher Hole Gallery in London and the Amsterdam City Theatre, and knowledge institutes such as the Hong Kong University in Shanghai and the Delft University of Technology.
Presented in conjuction with the Confucius Institute.
