venice biennial and city planning

next year's venice architecture biennial will focus on the theme of city and region transformation:

Titled “The Meta-city: Issues in City Planning,” the exhibition will focus on innovative proposals and directions needed in response to changing populations and working habits.

could this be a hopeful sign that the architecture industry is realizing the importance of creating a stronger dialogue with urban planners? I don't know, but the director of the biennial is from one of my alma maters - LSE, which has a strong emphasis on cities. the class I took with saskia sassen on global cities was among the best I had.
