Event Details

Join us in an urban field game followed by a discussion of the past, present, and future of escape in the city. Brent D. Ryan, Associate Professor of Urban Design and Public Policy at MIT; Jeffrey Shumaker, Deputy Chief Urban Designer for the City of New York; Elihu Rubin, Assistant Professor of Architecture and Urbanism at Yale University, and Gabrielle Esperdy, Associate Professor of Architecture at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, will examine the fluctuating perceptions of the city’s relationship to escape—tracking its evolution from 19th-century land of opportunity, to 20th-century land of urban flight, and on to today’s megalopolis as a place that people escape to, from, and within.

This event is presented as part of Elsewhere: Escape and the Urban Landscape, an initiative exploring the experience of escape in the urban environment.
