Symposium on Web-based Participation in the World Trade Center Reconstruction

Symposium on Web-based Participation in the World Trade Center Reconstruction

Jonathan Cohen and Associates


The Internet promises to be a powerful tool for enabling community-based design. Interactive and media-rich Web sites can enable much wider participation by stakeholders and the public in planning decisions than has previously been possible.

This one-day symposium takes as a case history the most visible building project on earth, in a city with 8 million opinions: the reconstruction of the World Trade Center site. Representatives of Imagine New York, a project of the Municipal Arts Society; Listening to the City, a project of Web Lab and the Civic Alliance; and Reconstruction Report, a project of the Design Trust for Public Space, discuss how the Internet is playing a significant role in this ongoing public conversation.
