Join Kate in Waterproofing New York Conference at CCNY
mar 2, 2013
The conference hopes to reveal the operating systems of the city in a way that gets people to view “Waterproofing New York” as an act of coordinated yet opportunistic, pragmatic, and inventive city design. In addition, it is intended to support emerging skepticism of a big barrier "fix,” as well as the unplanned, uncoordinated shoring up of individual enterprises and discreet sites that would ensue without design and civic leadership.
The conference is hosted by the Spitzer’s School’s landscape architecture program with support from the Municipal Arts Society, American Society of Landscape Architects New York chapter and the Institute for Urban Design.
