Fall Fellow Reception

September 19th, 2023
5:30pm - 7:30pm
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Four Freedoms Park, New York, NY, USA

Join us to welcome a new class of Urban Design Forum Fellows. For the first time, our reception will be open to our entire community of fellows and friends.

We look forward to celebrating our last year of work together. We advanced ideas and proposals to shape a healthier city, re-envisioned how we keep our city clean, shared new critical perspectives on the city, and began to transform public space across New York City for new cultural celebrations.

Our event will take place at sunset at Four Freedoms Park, one of the last designs by Louis Kahn. The park’s updated design was completed by Mitchell Giurgola with construction led by Sciame. We will be hosted by Four Freedoms Park Conservancy.

If you’ve been meaning to get involved in the Forum, now is the perfect time. Admission is free for new Fellows who have joined the Forum within the past year. If you’re not yet a Fellow, you can purchase a membership when you RSVP via Eventbrite. Existing members should purchase an admission ticket for the event.

If you’d like to learn more about Forum membership, please be in touch with Miranda Bellizia, our Director of Member Engagement, at miranda@urbandesignforum.org

Rain Date: September 21.
