U.S. cities located in arid regions must deal with pressures created by rapid growth, the patterns that shape growth, and the scarcity of resources in the natural environment. Understanding this basic principle is the biggest single sustainable issue confronting urban design in arid regions.

The School of Architecture at the University of Arizona is organizing the second international symposium on "Cities in Arid Regions" in collaboration with the Facultad de Arquitectura at the Pontificia Universidad Catlica (PUC) of Santiago, Chile; the University of Newcastle, Australia; and the Escuela Tcnica Superior de Arquitectura (ETSAM), Madrid, Spain. The meeting is scheduled for Jan. 20-23, 2005, in Tucson.

The program is organized along six areas of research, including:

  • Who designs the city: The political framework of urban design
  • Ecosystem dynamics and ecosystem management in arid regions
  • Human ecology and urban design: Prospects for a new arid regions' urbanism
  • Transportation and ecological mobility alternatives
  • Building technology: Sustainable technologies and materials for city building
  • Approaches for establishing institutional bridges for effective change

Notables at the conference include Arizona Gov. J
