NEW LOCAL is a three-part series of half-day workshops and participatory talks centered on an examination of locality and its conditions. The sessions bring together leaders from a variety of industries, from architects, developers and planners to policy makers, sociologists, and anthropologists, who will discuss new forms of public space, modes of living and manufacturing in New York City, and the expanding role of design.
This will be second event in the series focusing on living.
Historically, the city has been the setting for the most innovative and radical living typologies, and yet, as the population and demographics of NYC change, new models of housing are rare. It is clear that as cities change it is necessary for urban populations to more seriously consider equity, diversity, and inclusion when developing new housing systems so that living situations reflect actual demographics.
During this workshop, we will try to answer the following questions: can sharing platforms help resolve urgent social housing issues? Are there new ways of looking at existing social housing stock and left-over spaces in a more efficient way? Can we create new housing typologies to respond to new social contracts developing in urban cores? How can we better share the resources of our cities to create a diverse and equitable future?
Join us for a half-day of workshops and participatory talks to examine what it means to live in cities today and what typologies of housing are needed to support new needs, and how we define “neighborhood” today.
