2 August Talk on China’s flash urbanization

China's Flash Urbanization with Neville Mars

This Tuesday, Neville Mars, Chief Architect for MARS Architects, founder of the Dynnamic City Foundation, and author of The Chinese Dream: A Society Under Construction, will speak on “China’s Flash Urbanization: The Race between Eco-Hope and Eco-Hazard”, about the unfulfilled promise of environmental sustainability in China’s urbanization, and new ways of attaining eco-friendly urban design.

I will be moderating the event.

If you’re interested in attending, please RSVP to franktsai@technomicasia.com due to limited seats. Do say hello during the drinks/mingling post talk!

Date and time: 2 August, 2011. Tuesday. 7pm

Address: The Wooden Box. 9 Qinghai Lu 青海路9号. Near Nanjing West metro stop.

P.S. I’ve created a Facebook page for the blog even though it remains blocked in China. But I know people have different ways of following blogs. So I figured why not. Feel free to head over to the FB page and share the love with a click of a “like”.

Update: Thanks to those who showed up to attend the talk. Neville had a very iconclastic vision of how China can address the challenges of urbanization, or “deurbanize” so to speak. I encourage all to check out his company/ foundation’s site, burb.tv.  Lovely to speak to everyone of you.
