Katrina 10 Years After

Flooded area of northwest New Orleans, Louisiana

Panel discussion on Katrina and cities as risk areas.

Cities are growing at a rapid rate and by 2040, 65% of the world’s population will be living in cities. Some see endless possibilities, while others see the apocalypse approaching. As such, the city is a space for both flowering and destruction, dreams and disillusionment, and poses several pressing new questions to our present about sustainability, growth and architecture as a framework for human existence.

This event will focus on man’s urban culture in conflict with ecological mega forces. There will be a panel discussion on Katrina and cities as risk areas with leading researchers from the interdisciplinary project Changing Disasters, University of Copenhagen. Moderator: curator Jacob Lillemose.

The event is free and open to all, but seating is limited, so registration is required. Please send an e-mail with your name to info@xandbeyond.dk
