CONFERENCE THEME

The city’s capacity to change and evolve in time is a quality increasingly regarded in relation to resilience and the pursuit of prosperity.  Urban form holds a key role in this. As such, urban morphology is key in the design and management of our evolving cities.

The Urban Design Studies Unit at the Department of Architecture, University of Strathclyde is honoured to host the 28th International Seminar of Urban Form (ISUF2021) conference in Glasgow, UK.  The conference addresses the role of urban morphology in delivering sustainable and prosperous cities, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and, in particular, SDG 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities”.

This conference aims to address: 1) the state of the art in the study and understanding of urban form; 2) the current and future challenges that call urban form into play; 3) the relationship between urban morphology and other areas of science, and how to bridge gaps in interdisciplinary research. We will also discuss a number of key topics that reflect latest concerns and innovations in the discourse on cities at an international level.

CONFERENCE FORMAT

Due to the protracted uncertainty around COVID-19 crisis, as explained in our recent blog post, it was finally decided that the conference will be held as an online-only event, with no in-person component.

Whilst we appreciate this might be a disappointment for some, we will do our very best to deliver an exciting, engaging and memorable event for everyone.

Slán leat to all!
