How can the average citizen initiate participation and contribute to the progress of the city? The conversation will be led by individuals who have taken an active role in the design of the urban environment, and will inspire a brainstorming of new ideas and process models that enable the citizen to become a critical player in contemporary urban planning and design.

Moderator: Guido Hartray, AIA, Founding Partner, Marvel Architects

Discussants:
Nancy Nowacek, Artist
Scott Francisco, Founder and Director, Pilot Projects
Jonathan Marvel, Founding Principal, Marvel Architects

Conversation 2: Private/Public Partnerships
Saturday February 20, 2016, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

To what extent- if at all- is privatization a boon to the design of equitable urban space? As collaborations between public agencies and private actors endeavor to promote growth while accruing capital for large- scale public projects, a gradually increasing amount of city land becomes unavailable to a vast number of everyday individuals. The discussion will consider the current state of private/public partnerships in the urban context, and reflect on new models that might further engage citizens in the making of decisions about private sector involvement in the public realm.

Moderator: Lissa So, AIA, Founding Partner, Marvel Architects

Discussants:
Carolee Fink, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, NYCEDC
David Belt, Executive Director and Founder, Macro Sea
Regina Myer, President, Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation

CITIZEN/DESIGNER Conversation 1: Gentrification/Affordable Housing | Feb. 6, 2016

Is large scale private development at odds with the availability of viable options for public housing? The conversation will investigate the ability of everyday citizens to promote affordable housing that can survive and perhaps even thrive in the current climate of real estate speculation and the accompanying burdens on (and displacement of) existing communities.
