Shape Shift

Our next mayor must transform New York City’s approach to urban design to achieve housing equity, economic justice, and environmental health. In our 2019-20 program, Shape Shift, we welcome you to share your vision for the built environment under the next mayor. This fall, we will revisit the historic planning shifts that have shaped our city today. Early next year, we will survey international cities pioneering social housing programs, economic regeneration strategies, and public realm revamps. And next spring, we will lead debates on alternative approaches to the present state of planning.
