Public Lecture// STARCHITECTURE, World Architecture Festival, London, June 2015


Starting from the question of what impact globalisation has had on architecture and contemporary cities, Davide Ponzini and Michele Nastasi provided evidence, images and interpretations drawing on their ongoing research in Abu Dhabi, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Milan and other cities. They called for a more local understanding of how similar and global economic, political, media and cultural mechanisms sourround the work  of internationally acclaimed architects and how the latter can better contribute to the diverse urban landscapes.
