STHLMNYC_Conversation

 

We like to welcome you to the STHLMNYC | Conversation as part of Archtober on October 6th and 7th in New York.

This year’s program will offer insight into pioneering solutions that address a wide variety of challenges our cities face during the contemporary housing challenge. The solutions are small-scale, affecting the urban scale and will be presented and discussed in a two-part program – Politics & Planning and Architecture & Technology. The program will formulate progressive solutions that answer a multiple of challenges while simultaneously providing valid, specifically when combined, strategies.

Join us for our program in New York during Archtober to collaborate towards innovative solutions for the future housing challenge.
