Large-Scale Developments—from Battery Park to Hudson Yards to future rezonings throughout the five boroughs—have shaped and will continue to shape the physical fabric of New York City’s built environment. This conference encourages cross-pollination among the professions of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning as we come together to examine this timely subject and explore lessons learned and potential for the future. This premier annual event among our three organizations will consist of four panel discussion sessions and a keynote speaker, each of which will address aspects of how New York City has been and will be influenced by large-scale developments.
