Corporations & Cities

The Corporations and Cities research program focuses on the relation between the city and the accommodation of large scale organizations such as corporate headquarters, governmental institutions and educational facilities. Little has been written about the ways this kind of accommodation influences the structure and liveability of cities, and, the other way around, how the vision and policies of urban planners impact the functioning of large organisations.
