The Atlantic commissioned Wayward to create an installation of the Algaegarden as the showcase entrance for the CityLab conference - the Annual Preeminent Gathering of Global Mayors.
The Atlantic, in partnership with The Aspen Institute and Bloomberg Philanthropies, once again convened preeminent mayors, urban scholars, architects, city leaders and innovators to address problems facing metropolitan areas. The groundbreaking summit featured presentations, field trips, tutorials and roundtable conversations among these leading minds to advance the bold, scalable ideas and solutions they are using to transform metro centers around the world.
This year, CityLab travelled to London—a locale booming with breakthrough ideas in both the public and private sectors. Building on the foundations established in New York City and Los Angeles, this year's event explored income inequality, safety, mobility, infrastructure and other dynamics of modern metropolises to create more livable and sustainable cities. The conference ran from October 18-20, 2015.
