The riba is taking a leaf out of the rias' book and staging a two day conference later this summer. The event, called city2k+ will take place on the weekend of the 7-9 July at The Lowry on Salford Quays, and will be on the subjects of density, regeneration, sustainability, historical, political and power issues and the shape of the city to come. riba joined forces with the department of architecture at the University of Cambridge which was planning a similar event in Cambridge. It features an impressive list of key speakers including an 'open lecture' from Lord Rogers, as well as contributions from Chris Wilkinson, Glen Howells, and Stephen Hodder. Key speakers include riba president Marco Goldschmied, Cambridge head of architecture Peter Carollin, Lowry architect Michael Wilford, London School of Economics' Tony Travers, Urban Splash's Tom Bloxham, engineer Alan Baxter, MBM Arquitectes' David Mackay, LSE professor of sociology Richard Sennett and English Partnerships' chairman Alan Cockshaw. The sessions will be chaired by Peter Murray of Wordsearch (the conference organisers), Deyan Sudjic, Michael Wilford and Richard Burdett.
