domusforum, the international convention organised at the Franco Parenti Theatre in Milan, will take place on 11 October 2018. This is a completely new platform for an examination of the future of cities: an opportunity for exchange between architecture and design, and the disciplines which current events have placed at the centre of the debate, such as economics, geography, social sciences and abstract thought. The aim of domusforum is to examine data, analyse trends and study the dynamics of the world of tomorrow through the intervention of global figures and research carried out in Shanghai, San Paolo, Chicago, London and Milan.
The topic will be treated in a multidisciplinary way, with particular reference to the challenges represented, on the one hand, by the management of migratory flows and the development of technology, and on the other by the need to attract human capital with a high potential and the need to re-think models for civil and social management. During the event, speakers of international importance will intervene in the fields of design, the institutions, economics and finance, the social sciences and business.
Are we sure that the cities of tomorrow will be smart, sustainable and reactive? Or will they be global networks where social processes are set by induced transnational dynamics. In both cases, what do these scenarios mean?
Continuing its tradition as a primary source of information through critical reflection, Domus has commissioned Nielsen to carry research through the use of quantitative questionnaires and qualitative interviews with experts in cross-cutting fields, and an analysis of the social networks. An abstract of this work will be distributed to the speakers before the event, while the full research and the salient contents that emerge during the encounter will be published in the November issue of Domus in a special section which will seek to offer an interpretation of the present and a vision of the future.
