Terri + Ian Present at Shaping the City Symposium in Chicago

In December of 2021, The European Cultural Centre hosted the first Chicago edition of Shaping the City: A Forum for Sustainable Cities & Communities, in tandem with the 2021 Chicago Architecture Biennial.

Broken out into two themes of conversation, Shaping the City Chicago discussed the significant role that urban planning and design plays in molding the interaction of people with their cities and their wellbeing. The forum set forward new thoughts around the rights to the city, through a spatial, pragmatic, yet inclusive and sustainable approach. The forum tackled these themes by comparing completely different approaches in international cities, namely in Europe and the Americas.”

As an extension to their similar presentation in Venice a few months prior, NANO’s Founders Terri and Ian Dreyer presented “Existing, Surviving, Thriving: Bridging the Edge”, which was part of the “Re-Imagining the City” subtheme.
