Equity matters.

As India becomes an increasingly urban nation, our cities require critical discourse on how to make housing, infrastructure, public space, and opportunity available to all citizens. This third edition of Z-Axis – the biennial conference organized by the Charles Correa Foundation – will draw on expertise from around the globe to debate and articulate the agency of architecture and planning in creating equitable cities.

The Charles Correa Memorial Lecture will be delivered at the opening session on Thursday, September 6 by Richard Burdett, professor of Urban Studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science and the director of LSE Cities and the Urban Age project.

Please join us from 1:30pm, Thursday, Sept. 6 through 7pm, Saturday, Sept. 8 at Kala Academy, Panaji, Goa.
