Public Spaces, Social Movements: How Planning and Design Can Shape Public Discourse

September 29, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Join us for our annual ASLA-APA-AIA conference.

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.
The expanding list of speakers includes:
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
Signe Nielsen, FASLA, Principal, Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, P.C.
Martin Zogran, Assoc. AIA, APA, Principal | Urban Designer at Sasaki
