Upcoming Exhibitions

September 10 - September 22, 2012

Beyond Zuccotti Park

“Where are the spaces in which we act as a community? Who governs them? Who decides on their design? Their use? And should we blur the controls, the boundaries, the authority, and the thresholds between public and private space, between streets and sidewalks?”
- Michael Kimmelman

“Public places allow us not only to express our needs but also to form what and who we are. These are spaces of social interaction that enable us to organize, learn, and share with one another.”
- Lance Jay Brown, FAIA, DPACSA and Ron Shiffman, Hon. AIANYS, FAICP
