Description

Join Metropolis and Kohn Pedersen Fox for a Think Tank discussion on Leveraging Technology for Adaptable City Planning.

Technology is rapidly changing our cities. Automation and the sharing economy are transforming our experiences of retail, hospitality, and transportation, as well as how we inhabit urban environments as a whole. From San Francisco to New York, are we fully prepared for this paradigm shift?

This panel will explore the data and tools that architects, planners, and policy makers need in order to engage proactively with disruptive technologies. Industry leaders will discuss efforts to measure how these changes impact our quality of life, and ultimately, how to improve decision-making in urban design.


Panelists:

David Gilford, Principal, HR&A Advisors

Will Carry, Senior Director, Policy Group, NYCDOT

Iben Falconer, Director, Gehl

Constantine Kontokosta, NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress

Stefan Al, Senior Mobility Specialist, KPF


David Vega-Barachowitz, Senior Urban Designer, NYC Department of City Planning

Moderator: Avinash Rajagopal, Editor in Chief, Metropolis

1.5 AIA CEU HSW credits available
