Urban Design Week was a public festival created to engage New Yorkers in the fascinating and complex issues of the public realm, and to celebrate the streetscapes, sidewalks, and public spaces at the heart of city life. At its heart was By the City/ For the City, a crowdsourced design project that gathered more than 600 ideas for improving New York City from its citizens, and then generated more than 150 design proposals from architects, planners, artists, and urbanists around the world. Together, these ideas—from citizens and designers alike—have been gathered in An Atlas of Possibility for the Future of New York, a new publication that presents a collective portrait of how we imagine the city’s future.
