Welfare city or wealth city?

Pinder, D. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationLecture and oral contribution


Rising housing prices accompanied by expensive rents build an economic wall around the world’s biggest cities. While cities like Copenhagen and Aarhus earn international recognition for their high quality of life, economic imbalances and structural challenges are rising. What are the consequences of this development and what tools do urban planners and politicians have to face these challenges?

Kristoffer Weiss, philosopher and director of the Danish Architectural Press, has invited Dan Stubbergaard, architect and founder of COBE, and David Pinder, professor of Urban Studies at RUC, to a conversation about the invisible paywalls of the city.
