Globalization and World Cities: Reflections from São Paulo 2/7
Date: Friday 7 May 1999
A symposium co-organized by the Housing and Urbanism programme of the AA Graduate School and the Centre for Brazilian Studies of the University of Oxford. As one of the richest, most internationally integrated, socially divided and physically fragmented metropolitan centres of the developing world, São Paulo provides the starting and focus point for a comparative debate on the significance and impact of globalization. As an extreme case of integration and exclusion, it provides an important insight into the challenges and possibilities for architects and planners.
Session on 'Economic Restructuring' moderated by Leslie Bethell, with Paul Hirst, Ana Cristina Fernandes, Nigel Harris. Also includes John Humphrey as respondent.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
