Urban development strategies.
Young architects often have a difficult stage for the presentation of their work and their vision. PechaKucha Ghent and Archipelago want to break it. We have 10 young offices touted asking you to zoom in on their vision of urban development strategies and new forms of living. Of course, they can also create their personal item. Speeches delivered in 400 seconds are usually very different, both in style and content, but that’s what makes the formula so fascinating.
