Cities: Learn from the Nordics

SXSW: Rebuild, Rethink, Design-think Your City, Austin, Texas

Why are Nordic cities internationally acclaimed for their high living standards and what does design have to do with it? In the Nordics, we make use of design and technology to build better, more liveable and connected cities.

The panel will explore how urban development should be driven by both a profound understanding of how people move through the city and live in it as well as new technology. In addition to this, the panellists will also discuss how to view the city as a design opportunity from A to Z.
