During the 16th & 17th of January 2014, AESOP's thematic group on Complexity and Planning held its 12th meeting in Manchester. The event was hosted by the Manchester School of Architecture and focused on exploring more closely the potentials and parallels between processes of Spatial Planning and Urbanism/Design. In particular, how the complexity sciences can create and enhance this discourse through an examination of processes of inevitable transformation.
A special word of gratitude goes to Manchester School of Architecture and in particular Ulysses Sengupta for an incredibly warm and well organized event.
