The Symposium was opened by Professor Kohei Itoh, Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology. It brough together an interdisciplinary group of experts, with invited presentations by academics and practitioners from Amsterdam (the City of Amsterdam Department of Planning and Sustainability - Mirjana Milanović, Pieter Klomp,  Paul Chorus; University of Amsterdam - Zef Hemel) and Tokyo (Urban Renaissance Agency - Hirokazu Ishiwatari, Keio - Darko Radović, Hiroto Kobayashi; Tokyo - Kengo Kuma; Meiji - Davisi Boontharm; Hosei University - Hidenobu Jinnai; Japan Research Institute - Yoshitaka Oshima; Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Melbourne - Jane Homewood; full list at the flyer, below) and a number of invited discussants. The main aim was to exchange information about current trends and advance thinking about the future of cities in the age of rapid globalisation. The exchange of experiences in dealing with challenges of growth and densification will be valuable for both cities, as it has the potential for diverse generalizations and broader contribution towards smarter, environmentally and culturally sustainable development.
The themes tabled through presentations and discussion of the past, present and future projects included
future (of) cities,
smart[er] cities, smart[er] communities), to
top-down, macro, strategic+bottom-up,micro tactical responses to globalisation
quality of urban life and densification
