Morten Holm, Design Director of ARCHILAND, presented his unique insights on sustainable planning, ecological city and livable living. He pointed out that public space should be people-oriented. Livability is not just about landscape and decorations. It requires urban planning and urban renewal according to local conditions.
Participants, together with experts, discussed many issues related to livability. The discussion diversified the concept of "livable", indicated the direction of "livable cities" vividly, and interpreted the future of livable cities from multiple dimensions.
Through this event, new vitality, concept and theoretical guidance have been provided for future livable cities. Meanwhile, the cooperation and exchanges of all parties have been strengthened. This is a brand-new way to promote the development of livable ecology.
