From October 13 to 15, Utopian Hours will return to Lavazza’s headquarters, La Centrale della Nuvola, in Turin, Italy, designed by Cino Zucchi Architetti. It will host three days of events that bring together urbanists from around the world. This marks the seventh edition of the festival and promises to be the most expanded version of the gathering, presented by Stratosferica.
With the theme of Manifesto for a New City Making, Utopian Hours will welcome keynote speakers Scott Kratz, who will discuss the 11th Street Bridge project in Washington, D.C.; Eugenia Kargbo, Africa’s first Chief Heat Officer; Peter Van Wingerden, of Floating Farm, from The Netherlands; and Patrice Gillespie Smith, who will present Miami’s Underline.
