Description

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District (BID), in collaboration with General Assembly and local institutions and businesses, presents eight weeks of free education classes on the Flatiron South Public Plaza.


Site City Future | Van Alen Institute

Site City Future asks, how can the city design for livability while competing in a global economy? In what ways can design support the essential values that make New York a great city? What planning and design policies can promote a more inclusive approach to growth?

Site City Future will explore the impacts of future development on both the city’s physical character and the well-being of citizens through three lenses:

The Site: Connection to Place

The City: We Live on an Island

The Future: The Role of Design
