About the Show
CITIES ON THE EDGE: MICHAEL KIMMELMAN – ARCHITECTURE CRITIC OF THE NEW YORK TIMES
PRESENTED BY THE NEW YORK TIMES
Join Michael Kimmelman, architecture critic of The New York Times, for a talk about the challenges and opportunities facing cities around the world.
With more people living in cities than at any other time in history, we have become an urban species. But as cities continually expand, with populations in megacities expected to reach 100 million by 2050, there are intense challenges ahead.
Will cities rise to the occasion, or slip further into chaos? What are the glimmers of hope on the horizon, and what are the signs of grave danger?
Join us for an exploration of urban existence and the ingredients we need to mix correctly for cities to remain livable, tolerant and productive human ecosystems
Includes an opportunity to view MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art from 8–9.30pm.
