The worldwide leadership of the SOM City Design Practice will meet with urban planning colleagues and students in major Chinese cities during May 2014 in order to exchange experiences and views about shared responsibilities in ensuring livable and sustainable urban environments in the 21st century – the Century of Cities.

SOM City Design Practice leaders will present SOM’s Nine Principles for repairing urban environments and creating balance between nature and the city. They will use case studies of Chinese and international cities that illustrate these principles. 

SOM planners are eager to meet their Chinese colleagues knowing that they will play an important international role in the next few decades. First, because Chinese planners know best from their own experiences the lessons of explosive urban growth. Second, because of their emerging expertise in devising holistic solutions for mitigating the damage done to the environment by rapid urbanization. 

SOM’s City Design Practice has completed dozens of projects all over China in the past 20 years. The architecture, engineering and interior design firm of which it is part has designed more than 100 buildings in China, many of which are city skyline landmarks. Please plan to participate in this strategic dialogue.
