With the Mayor’s affordable housing plan in mind, this panel will bring together architects, government officials, and housing advocates to address the intersection of civic space and housing in New York City. Speakers will touch on the future of large NYCHA housing sites and their potential modifications, community centers in NYCHA housing developments, open spaces between apartment buildings that could become social spaces, the relationship between housing, housing precincts, and the sidewalks and spaces beyond and between neighboring communities as well as other examples of public places that form within and alongside integrated housing developments.

This panel will be presented in conjunction with the Open to the Public: Civic Space Now exhibition at the Center for Architecture, on view from June 12 - September 6, 2014 and is an initiative of the Lance Jay Brown, FAIA, 2014 Presidential theme: ‘Civic Spirit:Civic Vision.’
