Oct 20, 2018
Join the AIANY Planning and Urban Design Committee for a special speed presentation event. Future Streets 20×20 will feature presentations focusing on urban street use and development.
In light of new technologies and shared economies, one of the city’s largest public assets—our streets—have taken center stage for rethinking and re-imagining. Future Streets 20×20 will open a conversation around the physical design, the activities that take place there, the users, and the policy frameworks of streets. The conversation will aim to foster more efficient, more valuable and more equitable models for configuration of these public assets, our city’s streets.
Schedule: 10:30am–12:00pm Activity 1: Speed Presentations at the Center For Architecture A series of speed presentations about what may be possible in the realm of our future streets. A diverse group of participants from advocacy organizations, educational institutions and other stakeholders, share their activities and ideas on ‘who’ gets to ‘own’ the future public realm, and by extension our future streets.
12:00pm–3:00pm Activity 2: Community Lunch on LaGuardia Place LaGuardia Place will be car-free and open to pedestrians, cyclists, residents, students and any passers-by! All are welcome to join a community table that will span the entire length of a block. Participants can bring along their own food or pick up meals from local restaurants on the block or in the neighborhood.
This event organized with support from the American Planning Association New York Metro Chapter (APA NYMC), BrightView Landscapes, and Perkins Eastman.
In the event of rain, event will take place under tents on LaGuardia Place.
As a reminder, AIA National policy requires participants to attend the entire educational portion of an event to receive continuing education credits. We encourage all participants to arrive on time to comply with this policy.
