If the future is the city, and the city the future, what kind of a city do we want? How do we make the city civic again?
“The Future is the City but What will it be?” – A conversation between Kazi Khaleed Ashraf and Adnan Morshed. If the future is the city, and the city the future, what kind of a city do we want? How do we make the city civic again? How do we reconcile the appetite for real estate profit and ecological vulnerability? How will the new city relate to our landscapes and settlements? Two of our most known architectural historians and critics, Kazi Khaleed Ashraf and Adnan Morshed, sat down for a conversation, debate and reflection.
