Programme in Six Cities

Cities are our homes, our stages, our works. They provide a rhythm and determine how we move through time and space. As early as 50 years ago, the French sociologist Henri Lefebvre wrote his essay “The Right to the City,” in which he describes a city’s structure, architecture and urban life as a mirror image of its society’s challenges. His vision and critical assessment of the future city, where a “space of consumption” will coincide with a “consumption of space,” have long become our common reality.
