Event Details

Cities and civilizations have always been centered around bodies of water; thus great cities were always built around and along these waterways. Riverside, seaside and beach front properties and communities remain to be valuable land parcels in most major cities. But as the saying goes, there are always exceptions to the rule.
Mr. Leandro Poco will speak on urban heritage through the concept of historical urbanism. Using the city of Manila as an example, he will discuss how present-day Manila’s sprawling urban communities have largely strayed away from waterside communities that the city was built upon. He will also touch on the planned infrastructure developments along the historic Pasig River and its implications for the city’s historical roots and consequent future directions and developments.
