OUR RESILIENT CITY

PIONEERING DESIGN® 2022

Re-imagining communal spaces for a post-pandemic world.

Pioneering Design is focused on finding inspiration in the city where we are fortunate enough to live and practice design. Societal change and events can inspire great design. Looking at how urban planning, public art, and even building codes are affected by pivotal moments in our rich city history, what are aspects of current events, urban renewal, and activism that have affected our behaviors and how we interact with space?
We are building on the ideas and preserving the history of this moment and how attitudes towards culture, dining, and entertainment have shifted and as a result, transformed space.
Please join us for a compelling panel discussion focused on how the city’s landscape has physically transformed in the past 2 years, specifically around how New Yorkers engage with entertainment, dining, and hospitality.
