Shaping the Future of Our Cities
Thinkers, innovators, and urban stakeholders from across the globe are assembling in London to discuss the future of our cities at a time of climate emergency and define the next steps towards building more ecological cities.
Mayor of London Said...
"Global cities have a big role to play in tackling climate change and environmental issues. London has shown its leadership by committing to a Green New Deal to help London become greener and fairer - creating new jobs and skills for Londoners and ensuring London becomes a net zero-carbon city by 2030 and a zero-waste city by 2050. It is fantastic news that London will be the host city for the Ecocity World Summit 2023."
The Next steps begin here
The in-person summit will be set in the iconic Barbican Centre in central London. Across three days, the Ecocity World Summit will be a hotbed of discussion for global communities, professionals, and policy makers. Together, they will be sharing knowledge and facilitating new thinking for the future of cities.

We have consistently pushed the boundaries and limits of structure through the use of cutting-edge software and progressive techniques, and are just as comfortable with complex geometries as we are with more traditional forms of design.
