The Habitat Research Center is very pleased to inaugurate next Thursday a new cycle of Urban and Environmental Theory Sessions, associated to the MAS ETH EPFL in Urban and Territorial Design. Over the fall semester, these public sessions will address the challenges of spatial, social and energy transition through various contributions: from human geography, urban studies, spatial design, environmental studies and system thinking. With a focus on territorial realities and scales, these moments will also be a place for debate. Each session will conclude with questions from the audience, in which you are warmly welcome to participate.
