    AIANY Global Dialogues 2012: Shadow City(s)

    The AIANY Global Dialogues Committee will host an event titled Shadow City(s) to examine patterns of peri-urban growth in the Global South that define some of the most prolific urban typologies of the 21st Century; developments in municipalities or adjunct cities on the periphery of traditional/historical centers that share an urban dichotomy between informal settlement vs. formalized development including gated communities, corporate/industrial campuses and significant infrastructural projects.
