Local to Global – Urban Design Narratives from Around the World #4 - “Border Urbanism - Exploring Border Issues In Urbanism Discourse” was successfully held on 22 May 2023.
Thank you to our guest speakers, Dr. Quazi Mahtab Zaman of Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment of Robert Gordon University for his sharing and contributions. Also, special thanks to our moderators, Mr. Peter Wu, for leading the event.
Border research has been a common title in socio-political and allied disciplines. Urban Design and Planning seldom embrace borders due to their political connotations and are hard to align with the spatial domain and their relevance to place-making.
Border urbanism is an unexplored area which has the potential to answer many spatial, social and life-quality issues at the borderlands. This webinar will introduce nearly 6 years of research within 35 countries, aided by two consecutive global conferences held in Scotland and Spain. The webinar will also introduce the author's first book and its contents ‘Border Urbanism – Trans-disciplinary Perspectives, by Quazi Mahtab Zaman and Greg Hall.
