Event Details

DESIGN AS A CATALYST FOR SOCIAL CHANGE: LEARNING FROM THE BRONX

2014 ushers in New York City’s first new Administration in twelve years – and with it comes the promise of change and new priorities. The 2014 Conference will investigate the importance of design as a key factor in the social and economic development of the city.

 

The Bronx has emerged as an exciting testing ground for this new growth and change. The morning session will be held at the New York Botanical Garden, and afternoon tours will offer an inside look at five innovative Bronx projects using the built environment to promote greater social justice.
