Mr. Whalen will discuss strategies he and his team have developed to create high-density urban habitats that engage the public in a coherent but multifaceted walkable experience. Working at a variety of scales, the group looks to the most admired places—both those that have been planned all at once and those that have evolved naturally over time—in the best cities worldwide and combines their best features with local and regional traditions.
"Cities to Megacities" will take place progressively across three cities in China's Pearl River Delta, beginning in Shenzhen, moving to Guangzhou, then concluding in Hong Kong. The conference will run October 16-21.
