Mediation and globalization have splintered the histories of cities. In their place we’ve received constantly changing, ever appearing, narratives with competing claims on the future. In Dubai Amplified Stephen Ramos reveals an opportunity to question, complicate, and interrogate these post-narratives. He portrays the unique relationship between cities and time through the story of one such place.This panel will expand this notion across three cities: Dubai, Las Vegas, and Bangkok and explore how competing narratives reveal a deeper understanding of the contemporary urban moment and can help shape its future.
Panelists: Stephen Ramos, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Brian McGrath, Parsons the New School for Design, Aseem Inam, Parsons the New School for Design. Moderated by: Scott Pobiner, Parsons the New School for Design.
