Led by chief curator Terence Riley, this dual-city event features an international roster of artists, designers and architects from Finland to Taiwan. Look out for 6 Under 60, a multimedia exhibition examining the successes and failures of six cities created in the last 60 years (Shenzhen, Las Vegas, Almere, Gaborone, Brasilia and Chandigarh); Counterpart Cities, which highlight the ecological and environmental issues in Shenzhen and Hong Kong; and The Street, a showcase of the designs of 12 architects in their 30's and 40's.
