Chairs of Architecture and Urban Design, Institute of Urban Design, Network City Landscape NSL at the Swiss Institute of Technology/ETH in Zürich

Alfredo Brillembourg and Hubert Klumpner are founders and directors of Urban-Think Tank, an interdisciplinary design practice based in Caracas, Venezuela and Zurich, Switzerland. The two hold the Chair of Architecture and Urbanism at the ETH Zurich, where they teach in the Institute of Urban Design, Network City Landscape NSL. Since 2007, they have also been teaching at Columbia University, where they founded the Sustainable Living Urban Model Laboratory (S.L.U.M.). Brillembourg and Klumpner will present their idea of integrated infrastructure, which they call Urban–Tool Box, a method and thinking system designed to empower citizens and city building. Their lecture will highlight, among many projects, the recently developed Metro-Cable San Agustin, an urban cable car system featuring music, sports, and educational programs, developed for the city of Caracas in partnership with Austrian Company Doppelmayr Ropeways. The project was also recently featured in the MoMA exhibition, “Small Scale–Big Change.”
