Rapid urbanisation and migration are era defining. For the first time in history, more of us are living in cities than beyond them, but even urban success brings its own problems of overcrowding and escalating property prices. Given the current global climate, the aim of the Week is to be a voice for optimism, internationalism and sharing of ideas to show how architects really can be at the heart of better cities and places.
