The Future of Public Space

From Zuccotti Park to Campus Martius, from hidden corners to major squares, people are talking and learning about the role that civic space plays in their lives.

“The Future of Public Space” panel will provide an opportunity to discuss the issues and opportunities in our emerging era of urbanism. The panel will surf the scales from play to protest and from informal to formal. Critics, researchers, and others will look at how the space we create between buildings serves to expand opportunities, reflection, movement, and congregation. They will discuss the critical role played by our shared urban realm as we increase the population and density of our cities.

This event is the third in a series of four programs related to the Open to the Pubic: Civic Space Now exhibition on view at the Center for Architecture from June 12 – September 6. The exhibition is an initiative of the Lance Jay Brown AIANY 2014 Presidential theme Civic Spirit:Civic Vision, which seeks to elevate public awareness of contemporary design challenges and opportunities as they relate to urban public space.
