There is a clear resurgence of social movements happening throughout New York City and other major metropolitan areas in the United States. This renewed focus on the public realm calls into question how planners and designers can respond and engage with issues related to the civic commons.
The local chapters of the American Planning Association (APA), American Institute of Architects (AIA), and American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) are co-hosting a one-day conference to examine this timely subject, explore contemporary issues associated with the civic commons, and discuss ideas for the future of spaces for public discourse. The conference will include viewpoints and information from political change organizations and city management, spatial studies and a moderated town hall.
Speakers: Vishaan Chakrabarti, Architect and Founder of PAU Saskia Sassen, Professor of Sociology at Columbia University Ethan Kent, Senior Vice President at Project for Public Spaces Kate Slevin, Vice President, State Programs & Advocacy, Regional Plan Association Adriana Espinoza, New York City Program Manager, New York League of Conservation Voters Martin Zogran, Principal, Sasaki Annel Hernandez, Resiliency Planner, New York City Environmental Justice Alliance Justin Davidson, Author & Architect Critic, New York Magazine Dawn Tolson, Director of Street Activity Permit Office, New York City Mayor’s Office Venus Melo, Deputy Director of Citywide Events, New York City Parks Department David Breen, Deputy Director of Public Space, New York City Department of Transportation
