AIA Continuing Education Credits: 3 Total


The program explores the relationship of architecture to the way places and cities are made. What are the forces shaping the places, buildings and cities we live in that in turn shape professional practice? How can architects work creatively and effectively with clients, users and other professionals? How can the architectural profession contribute to the revitalization of our cities and a renewal of public spirit. The symposium starts with "Placemaking Now Exploring Ideas", a panel of the 2002 AIA/NYC Heritage Ball honorees: Hugh Hardy, Ken Holden, Elizabeth Barlow Rogers and Jonathan Rose, exploring how architects, in collaboration with others, can express community values in public and private projects.

The second panel, "The City and the Profession in 2020, Exploring the Future" with panelists Gordon Chong, Alexander Garvin and Corey Sharples, envisions the city and the future of the profession. Where will New York be in the year 2020 and what part will the profession of architecture have in shaping our city?

Roland Betts, President of Chelsea Piers and Board Member of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, will conclude the symposium with remarks on the future of Lower Manhattan and New York City.
