Re_Solution is a series organized by IE School of Architecture and Design with the objective of leading a conversation about the complex field of city-making. The series will include recent mayors of cities that have ensured particular crises, such as Athens, Stockholm, Helsinki, Toronto and Lisbon.
Each of these cities has faced challenges and mobilized all available resources to keep their cities afloat, drawing from the power of public infrastructure and transformative urban projects including museums, festivals, markets and more. Re Solution seeks to demonstrate how city challenges have been addressed in collaboration with different sectors involved in city-making: the academic world and members of the public and private institutions.
The school understand cities holistically, as sites of transformation in the built, natural and digital world. As an educational institution, we want to generate knowledge and research, and welcome discussions that lead to transformation towards building sustainable cities for the future.
