Cities and Citizenship Symposium

NewYorkCityCitizen

Architects, sociologists and environmentalists explore the intersection between design and the social sciences at large by explicating the concept of “city” and “citizen” in parallel. Cities and Citizenship is a three-day symposium, consisting of a conference series and workshops, that explores how the design of cities can promote a more engaged citizenry. The event will engage leading designers, architects, landscape architects, planners, urbanists, historians, and scientists.

Cities and Citizenship is co-sponsored by the Goethe-Institut New York, Parsons The New School for Design, NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study and Global Design NYU. The symposium is organized by Alissa Burmeister from the Goethe-Institut New York, Ioanna Theocharopoulou from Parsons The New School for Design, Peder Anker, Louise Harpman, Mitchell Joachim, from Global Design NYU at Gallatin School of Individualized Study, New York University, and is part of the Goethe-Institut’s international Weltstadt: Who Creates the City? initiative.
