In 1975, the European Council initiated one of the most successful urban
development programmes in history. Its motto was: "A Future for our
Past". During the campaign the concept of the European city was reborn:
a common inheritance that must be protected, a tradition that must be
carefully developed and serve as an example for a better city, both in
Eastern and Western Europe.
The Congress will examine these issues in two parts.The first part uses
Berlin as an example of structural change in Urban Development. During
the second part, projects from England, Belgium, Sweden, the
Netherlands, Italy, the USA, Israel, Poland, and Portugal will be presented.
