NY LON #11 Deputy Mayor Dialogue: Grappling with Growth


When: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM TUESDAY, MAY 9

Where: At The Center   

Leading city experts will join New York’s Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, Alicia Glen and London’s Jules Pipe, Deputy Mayor for Planning, Regeneration and Skills, for a discussion on the future of London and New York as both cities grapple with creating a fair and equitable city in the face of massive growth.

As New York City contemplates a major reform in its Fair Share policy and areas are being rezoned to unlock more affordable housing, London is working towards Mayor Sadiq Khan's a City for All Londoners. However, change is happening rapidly and dramatically. How can we ensure healthy densification with the right distribution of community infrastructure? How do we connect new and existing communities with the pace of change?

Join us for this special eleventh event in our NY LON series, a key part of the NLA International Dialogues Programme, supported by KPF and in association with the Center for Architecture and Urban Design Forum. A live video seminar taking place simultaneously in both cities brings together speakers and audiences to foster cross-city dialogue and learning between London and New York. 

A light lunch will be provided.
