In 2016 the Netherlands Creative Industries Fund joined hands with UN Habitat Urban Labs. In 5 countries on 4 continents groups of architects, planners and urbanists analyzed the rapid urbanization and together with local experts they developed plans to tackle this or to streamline it. The design teams developed tailor made plans and created a solid foundation for the implementation of the solutions just for the locations.
MEDIAHQ has ben following the process for over a year, filmed on the locations with the design teams and presented the film at the HABITAT III conference in Quito in October 2016.
It is a perfect showcase of solution oriented Dutch urban planning.
Research by design to contribute to a safe, just and sustainable world.
