We convene civic leaders to confront the defining issues in New York City’s built environment.
The Urban Design Forum convenes civic leaders to confront the defining issues in New York City’s built environment.
For over 40 years, we have shaped the conversation around the future of New York City and cities around the world.
We work with an array of industry leaders from the architecture, planning, design, real estate, legal, and communications fields.
Our Director’s Circle and Company Members advise us on our programming, chair events, hold tours of recent projects, and more.
