Serban Cornea to speak at THE LIVEABLE CITY in Birmingham

On the 30th of November, Serban Cornea will speak at THE LIVEABLE CITY, a two-days celebration of architecture and planning in Birmingham. His talk will review MUTOPIA’s visionary work with development tendencies and their major impact on the transformation of cities towards becoming fossil-free societies.


Today, there is a growing agreement across the political spectrum with regards to the ambition of creating a green society. However, the road towards achieving a green society is challenging. Free-flowing transport is a major challenge to create, but nonetheless foundational for a liveable city, which is why more and more cities are looking to Denmark for inspiration.


Serban Cornea will present his view on how interfaces between different modes of transport integrated in masterplans based on intermodal green transportation systems providing ‘sustainable logistics’ can create healthy, peo­ple-friendly environments that can reduce congestion, pollution and carbon emission, as well as help cities cope with growing popula­tions and workforces.


The event, where central and local government, businesses, politicians and professionals take part in talks, seminars and debates on how cities can become better places to live, work and play, is organised by the Royal Danish Embassy in the UK in partnership with Birmingham City Council, West Midlands Combined Authority and the Royal Institute of British Architects.
