Thomas Doxiadis keynote speaker at the Garden Museum, London
Delightful Cities, the cutting edge from across Europe - Curated by Tim Richardson, 29/04/14 This day-long symposium curated and chaired by Tim Richardson explored the concepts of delight, variety and surprise in our cities and urban environments. Have these valuable aspects of landscape design been lost amid the enthusiasm for ecologically viable 'solutions' to the 'problem' of our cities in the 21st century? Whatever happened to delight? An international roster of speakers interrogated this idea, including Martin Rein-Cano of Topotek1 (Germany), Thomas Doxiadis (Greece), Helle Nebelong (Denmark) and Zus(Netherlands).
