SOM Director Peter Kindel and SOM Associate Ame Engelhart will speak at the Vertical Cities conference in Singapore on March 10, 2015. Their joint presentation, titled “Vertical Cities: Design Principles for the 21st Century,” will consider the similarities between designing tall buildings and designing entire cities. Using examples from SOM’s award-winning portfolio of supertall buildings and master plans throughout China, Kindel and Engelhart will discuss the underlying design principles that guide both kinds of work. Their presentation will also suggest how these principles can be enhanced to create sustainable, vibrant cities that meet the social and environmental challenges of the 21st century
