Can good design improve everyday life in our cities? Join GOOD,
CEOs for Cities, and the Department of Design and Construction (DDC) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) as New

proposed by the Institute for Urban Design's By the City/For the City competition, ranging from
concepts for utilizing forgotten infrastructure to ideas for improving
the subway. This fast-paced, high-energy presentation is moderated by GOOD's

about the future of our city.
