This occasional seminar series is run by the ‘Infrastructure in Action’ research theme at the Urban Institute. It is built around discussions on infrastructure, centred on one particular city and exploring the dynamic role of these systems in urban life.
Our first seminar will examine Buenos Aires and focus on the urban politics of green infrastructure in the city. A chance to find out more about this city and its infrastructure challenges from researchers at Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urbanism, University of Buenos Aires.
