The Art and Entertainment Committee of the Yale Alumni Association of Metropolitan New York (YAAMNY), in collaboration with the Peri Metropolis Walk and Talk New York, hosts  an afternoon of contemporary landscape architecture on Sunday, November 15, 2009 from 1 to 3:30 pm. The walking tour will meet at Battery Park Bosque (just south of Castle Clinton), right in front of Picnick food kiosque.

Teresa Jan, Yale'04, registered architect and urban design faculty at NYIT, co-founder of Peri Metropolis, will guide alumni through contemporary urban park designs along the lower Hudson waterfront, such as Battery Park Bosque (2005), Irish Hunger Memorial (2002),Teardrop Parks (2004), and The High Line (2009).    The tour will trace the evolution of park design and also highlight New York’s desire and recent efforts to reclaim the waterfront and revitalize the area through effective micro eco systems.  Immediately after the tour, Laura Starr, landscape architects of Battery Park Bosque and principal of Starrwhitehouse Architects, and Juergen Rheim FAIA, co-founder of 1100 Architect and architect in charge of Irish Hunger Memorial, are happy to meet with the alumni participants at the restaurant The Park (118 10th Ave) for further discussion.

Walk and Talk New York, offers authentic walking tours of New York City’s contemporary architecture and landscape. Short for “Peripatetic Metropolis,” Peri Metropolis is inspired by the informal mode of learning and exploration practiced by ancient Greek philosophers. Professional architects and designers guide small groups through a walking adventure, and interpret innovative and contemporary architecture along the way. Each Peri Metropolis tour is carefully curated to highlight a distinct theme or part of the city, and will offer insights into historical layers, global influences and economic transitions that have contributed to the modern city. check out
