Now in its fifth year, the Vertical Cities conference explores how innovative high-rise design can provide a sustainable solution for high-density cities.

This year's edition, which takes place in Hong Kong from March 7th to 10th, features talks from SOM leaders and spotlights the firm's influential work in China.

On Monday, March 7th, Peter J.Kindel, SOM Director of Urban Design and Planning in Hong Kong, spoke about unique challenges that China’s cities face in developing high rise urbanism for the 21st century.

On Tuesday, March 8th, Silas Chiow, Director of SOM China, will speak about on the next generation of skyscraper design. He will be interviewed by Jason Pomeroy, the founder of Singapore-based Pomeroy Studio and host of the City Re:Design and City Time Traveller series on Channel NewsAsia.

Finally, on Thursday, March 10th, delegates from the conference will travel to Guangzhou to tour SOM’s award-winning Pearl River Tower, a highly sustainable high-rise that serves as a model for energy-efficient tall buildings.
