Kate on Nature and the Design of the Grid
apr 19, 2012
Two key factors set the stage for the Commissioners' Plan of 1811: the explosive growth of the city and the conviction that New York was destined for greatness. While the grid has performed admirably within the context of human expansion and movement, it has also posed challenges when it comes to the city's natural environment. Bill Browning, founder of Terrapin Bright Green, as he moderates a panel with Eric Sanderson, Senior Conservation Ecologist at the Wildlife Conservation Society and author of Mannahatta/Manhattan: A Natural History of New York City; Kate Orff, Partner at SCAPE Landscape Architecture; and Carl Weisbrod, Clinical Professor and Academic Chair of Global Development at NYU, examining the environmental implications of the grid, as well as its possibilities for the future.
