1 INVITATION The Department of Urban and Spatial Planning, Faculty of Architecture, Silesian University of Technology, hereby invites participants to the second edition of the cyclical conference: REGION CITY- COUNTRY The Conference has an interdisciplinary character, accommodating representatives of various disciplines of science and practical engineering: architecture and urban planning, sociology, economics, geography; as well as administrators, politicians, designers, planners and other parties interested in shaping space. BIG PUBLIC INVESTMENTS IN THE CITIES OF AGGLOMERATIONS Under this title, participants will consider how particular cities shape their urban space to meet the needs and requirements of the entire Agglomeration. The main focus of the discussions will be investments reaching beyond the local level, especially on the scale of conurbations. Hence, the following issues will be discussed: How do cities cooperate with one another planning and implementing investments that serve the entire Agglomeration? Which cities shape public spaces of more than local importance? Do big investments strengthen the regional identity? How are big investments located on the Agglomeration scale? What is the architecture of big public investments? What is the role of big investments in the process of metropolis formation? Who pays for big public investments in agglomerations? The Conference organizers, living and working in the Silesian Agglomeration, one of biggest European mining and industrial conurbations, which is in the period of transition, are looking for answers to the questions concerning the transformations. We are witnessing attempts in the cooperation of the cities to address important problems, yet, at the same time also examples of the dispersal the means of resources to implement competitive initiatives. Although splendid cultural facilities of national and even international importance are erected, public transport problems, or problems with access to health services still remain unsolved. Many cities have been building huge public stadiums, while the centrally located construction of Silesian Stadium of great regional importance is still not finished. Such paradoxes indicate that big investments made in conurbations may require other measures and instruments to be successful.
2 INFORMATION The first REGION-CITY-COUNTRY conference was held in October 2014 under the title: LIVING IN CITIES. In its course several papers on modern housing were delivered. Architects, urban planners, sociologists, economists and geographers presented the most pertinent problems involved in housing, discussed new solutions and different directions in the development of housing in cities. During the second day of the Conference participants had the opportunity of visiting selected new housing developments in the Upper Silesian Agglomeration. The study trip included various examples of projects: from the revaluation of a historic workers settlement, through different forms of social housing, to apartments built for more well-to-do inhabitants.
