Managing Director Amy Chester will speak at Van Alen’s roundtable:
LICNYC: A Design Perspective
Wednesday, March 6th, 7:00 p.m

30 West 22nd StreetFree with registration
The competition among cities to be the site for Amazon’s HQ2 illustrated how modern industry and private enterprise are primary drivers of economic growth. The implications for urban planning are far-reaching. If business districts, public spaces, and waterfronts are increasingly shaped by corporate interests, what is the role of design within this framework? How can design help ensure that future development truly results in better lives for all of our city’s residents? With a roundtable of leading architects and planners, we’ll take on these challenges from a design perspective.
