Organized by AIA Brooklyn and Pratt Institute School of Architecture, this panel discussion and open conversation led by Pratt Professors Rebecca Krucoff, Christopher Cirillo and Lisa Ackerman will explore how we can identify and retain the key elements of our communities as we struggle to rebuild from these trying times. Preservation has to focus not just on retaining our physical environment but on preserving the intangible heritage that makes places special to their communities. The necessary social distancing measures faced during the COVID-19 pandemic have endangered some of the most important aspects of NYC’s urban fabric such as local businesses, gathering places, cultural institutions, and community centers. By engaging in place-keeping practices we hope to find ways to return to a city that still resonates with the soul of the New York we have always cherished.
