EUROPAN 7: SUBURBAN CHALLENGE, URBAN INTENSITY AND HOUSING DIVERSITY
The increasing use of the car, the development of out-of-town shopping centres, the increase in the number of leisure complexes, and the extension of business parks seem to be leading inexorably to a 'dispersed town' urban model. There is a new will to act in order to reorganise them by reviving the traditional planning ethos of European towns, and by associating this with the challenges of urban sustainability. Europan 7 proposes to tackle this issue at the interface between the urban planning level and the architectural level. Visit www. europan-europe. com for information. Deadline for registration 2.5.03.
