On December 11th we had the honor of convening experts in the fields of park development and design for a forward-looking and exciting conversation about how open space fits into a rapidly growing and developing city. The second in a series of four panel discussions, Open Space Dialogues: New Perspectives on Development + Design, featured Susan Chin of the Design Trust for Public Space; Bonnie Campbell of Two Trees Management; Wendy Feurer of the NYC Department of Transportation; NYC Council Member Brad Lander; Purnima Kapur of the NYC Department of City Planning; and Dave Barry of Urby in a discussion moderated by Claire Weisz of WXY architecture + urban design. We look forward to continuing the dialogue with our third Open Space Dialogue in February which will explore financing and policy options for improving delivery of open space to all neighborhoods. Stay tuned for more information.
