On Monday 18 May 2015, Rotterdam will host the second international Urban Transformation Conference (UTC 2015), its central theme ‘The Next Economy / The Next City’. It is not the goal of the conference to come up with ready-made solutions that may prove outdated tomorrow or perhaps next year, but rather to discuss the process of urban transformation, the ongoing design, development and governance of cities that are to be resilient and agile, no matter what happens. But how do we reach that goal and what challenges do we have to be prepared to face?
MVRDV's Jacob van Rijs will speak during one of the conference's breakout sessions on Public Interiors, reflecting on the success of projects such as the Markthal in creating lively interiors.
