Reshaping cities consciously

As one of the most spectacular signs of the property market boom, developers are not just building scattered individual single-purpose projects, they are launching large-scale, multi-functional projects that may take up to a decade to develop. There are several such projects in the pipeline. The effect of these projects goes way beyond the individual construction sites as they have a major impact on other developments and on the city as a whole. The leaders of three such grand developments in Budapest will present the state of their projects, the latest challenges and the upcoming steps, then they will hold a discussion moderated by an outstanding representative of the design profession.
