Lecture: Madrid-“Urban Social Design”

December 1, 2010 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Belinda Tato is a principle member of Ecosistema Urbano, an innovative agency focused on the understanding of the city as a complex phenomenon, from a special point of view between architecture, urbanism, engineering and sociology. She has directed workshops and given lectures at the most prestigious institutions worldwide, while situating urban action and intervention at the most local settings of cities.

In parallel, they have created a platform through new communication technologies that develops social networks and manage online channels around the subject of creative urban sustainability (www.ecosistemaurbano.com). At the moment, they are working on several urban proposals for different cities and their most recent projects include the design of an interactive public space for the Expo 2010 Shanghai China, an experimental urban playground in Dordrecht (The Netherlands) and the “Ecopolis Plaza” a waste to resources building on the outskirts of Madrid.
