#whOWNSpace: Observe, Diagram, Intervene #STRFRNT
William Whyte on urban space and the enforcement of undemocratic rules: “a stiff, clarifying test is in order.”
This Storefront for Art and Architecture workshop will use design and urban theory to critically study the design, ownership, and rules of New York City's open spaces as part of the #whOWNSpace project. The lens for the workshop will be on power dynamics around public space, focusing on the potential of open space to create democratic vitality. We are meeting at the Storefront for Art and Architecture and then going to the POPS at the Trump SOHO Hotel and Petrosino Sq.
DSGN AGNC - Rena Mande, Amanda Rekemeyer, Phil Grimaldi, organized by Quilian Riano
