All over the world, cities and major universities are collaborating to create new economies and regenerate society. Tecnológico de Monterrey is positioned to become a leader in stimulating national urban and economic regeneration—and prove the power of Latin American universities as engines of innovation and entrepreneurship. Tecnologico de Monterrey has set an objective to become one of the top 100 global universities, and the best university in Latin America. In response to this vision, Sasaki’s urban regeneration plan for Tecnológico de Monterrey establishes a framework for the long-term evolution of the campus and adjoining neighborhoods. The plan creates an environment in the university context that will attract significant research and development investment, while transforming the community into a lively, attractive, dynamic, and integrated district.
Sasaki’s master plan for Minsk City celebrates the rare opportunity to transform an existing 320-hectare urban airport site into a dynamic, attractive, and sustainable new district for the city of Minsk, Belarus. The master plan provides a 24/7 vibrant, diverse, and balanced mixed-use program that celebrates the unique airport heritage, while also re-integrating regional ecological, vehicular, and public transport networks. The master plan brings Belarusian landscape heritage, ecology, and contemporary sustainable living together to create a compact urban district in the urban context of Minsk.
Everyone Deserves Good Design | John Cary | Metropolis
“Whether as an architect, landscape architect, or planner, if you remember one thing from my talk today, I hope it’s to take the time to watch and listen to these people, and to learn from them. In that sense, your real design education is just beginning and will never end.”
The Ego and the Architect | Beth Mosenthal | Archinect
“When I think about the people I would consider “leaders” in my office, they don’t just include the people with the highest-ranking title or the most experience. They are the people who send out design inspiration emails, events, and tips to keep us involved and aware.”
