Global Cities

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Major international architecture-themed exhibition which will highlight the growing global influence of the world's mega-cities. Global Cities will see four leading international architectural practices and five artist commissions filling the famous Turbine Hall with displays exploring the current characteristics and future prospects of major international urban centres.

Each artist and architectural practice will exhibit works that explore key themes, such as managing the pace of urban growth, renewing transport infrastructure, addressing climate change and developing social cohesion. The exhibition will present these alongside socio-economic and geographic data assembled by the London School of Economics.

With 75% of the world's population likely to be living in urban areas by 2050, the shape, size and structure of exploding mega-cities increasingly affects not only the lives of millions of new urban dwellers but also the culture, economy and stability of the world as a whole. Global Cities will address these issues, reinforced with a particular focus on London.
