Reinventing Cities - Paris and Chicago in Dialogue


November 15, 2019


In the context of the creation of the University of Chicago's new Center in Paris, the University and the City of Paris are co-hosting a conversation featuring scholars and practitioners on both sides of the Atlantic around the theme of reinventing cities.

Jeanne Gang (Founding Principal Architect of Studio Gang) and Jean-Louis Missika (Deputy Mayor for Urban Planning, Architecture, and the “Grand Paris” Project) will be the featured speakers.

Following these presentations, a group of distinguished panelists will lead a public discussion on the concept of "Cities as Systems", with a primary focus on monitoring, data collection, and analytics. Participants will be: Dominique Alba (Director of the Paris Urbanism Agency—APUR), Luis Bettencourt (University of Chicago), and Charlie Catlett (University of Chicago).

There will also be short presentations by representatives of three Station F-based start-ups: Tuomas Autio (CEO of Majamaja), Hedieh Dorostkari (CSO of Data Soluce), and Jérôme Michaud-Larivière (CEO of New World Wind).

Please note that this event is hosted at Station F (10 min. away from our Center)
