The Best City in the World Shares its Recipe: The Agora Biennale in Bordeaux

The success of the French city Bordeaux should be a lesson to any other place looking to follow its example of success in the tourism industry. Selected as popular travel destination guide, Lonely Planet´s best city in the world, clearly there is something to learn from this magnificent destination.

While many may cite the quick transportation to Paris, the gourmet scene or the architecture, it is actually, its urban planning that has led to its popularity and success.

The challenge of creating an urban environment that has sufficient public spaces and green areas and a flow that encourages and delights visitors is a challenge that the urban planners of Bordeaux have successfully faced and surpassed.

Key Takeaways:

  • The theme for this year’s Agora Biennale, which is hosted for the best minds in architecture and urban planning, is ‘the metropolitan landscape.’
  • With more people living metropolitan lives, with climate change impacting in unforeseen ways, and with natural environs changing, inner and outer distinctions are becoming far less clear.
  • Hangar 14, which is housing the conclave, features a veritable ‘river’ of signs and a forest of 300 trees, destined for replanting after the exhibit.

“Lonely Planet picked Bordeaux as the best city in the world to visit, so there must be lessons to be learned from this exciting success story.”
