On Saturday, October 20th, Yibo Xu, Partner at Stefano Boeri Architetti China, takes part to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat in Dubai, among the most important international events focused on the future of cities.
The CTBUH 2018 edition, Polycentric Cities, The Future of Vertical Urbanism, investigates the contemporaneous state of the city and analyses the complexity of its infrastructures, of its public spaces, of its public functions and of its polycentric status.
Xibo Xu is part of a panel named Tall Timber Europe and dedicated to European approaches with a focus on innovative architectural models: from the use of timber in high rise buildings, to the inclusions of the natural element as a modulor for the design.
