Next week sees the start of the RIBA's series of lectures on masterplanning and city regeneration, with Los Angeles urban guru Mike Davis set to give it a cracking launch this Monday. The series also includes Kenneth Frampton, Terry Farrell, Adriaan Geuze of West 8, Lord Rogers, Demetri Porphyrios, Jon Rouse from CABE and Roger Kallman from SOM. The whole lot are being chaired by the AJ's ve r y own Paul Finch. There is also an interesting fringe series taking a (no doubt) rather different view of where masterplanning is, or rather isn't. Speakers include Kevin Rhowbotham and Fred Manson.
