Тема декабрьской сессии "Природа" – взаимодействие культурного и природного ландшафтов в городской среде и искусстве. Именно на их пересечении сегодня рождаются новый взгляд на урбанистику и новые формы искусства.

Своим видением и прочтением этого актуального тренда поделятся эксперты с мировым именем – Эндрю Логан (Великобритания) и Хидеми Нишида (Япония).
Experts will share their ideas with the audience on how to turn the city into a living, changing space, filling its daily life with new images and meanings.

The speakers of the 2st session in December are the following:
