Venue for ISOCARP Congress announced

We are glad to officially announce that the congress will be held at Tour & Taxis. This choice isn’t a coincidence.
The former Tour & Taxis railway site is currently undergoing a complete conversion, to make it an exemplary sustainable urban development, opening up the site and integrating it into the surrounding densely populated and lively neighbourhoods.

The different sessions (plenary sessions, workshops, …) will take place in "Maison de la Poste".

We’re finalising the congress program, which will be announced very shortly, so stay tuned!
