Urban Skyline and the Verticalization of European Cities

Sala Vigliano, Castello del Valentino - Viale Mattioli, 39, Torino

Lecture con il Prof. Manuel Appert - Université Lyon‐2.

Abstract
European cities are experiencing a renewed interest for verticalization. It has reached unprecedented proportions in a significant number of cities, reflecting as much a change in economic and political contexts as the persistence of some representations. Manuel Appert, associate professor of geography and planning at Université Lyon-2, has recently worked on the spatial and territorial incidences of urban verticalization, and on the regulation of tall buildings in London and other cities, leading the international “Skyline” Project.

The lecture is scheduled by the PhD Course Urban landscape. Trends, approaches, and planning tools (prof. C. Cassatella), but open for interested people.
