Prof. Diane Lewis and Assistant Prof. Michael Samuelian Participate in AIA-NY Panel Discussion
March 12, 2015
About the event:
Developers, urban planners, sociologists, and architects work together to reshape large portions of cities or to create new ones, each for a different goal but all through a common process: the master plan. This roadmap to a better future can take a lifetime to execute and affect millions of lives.
How do the roles of the players involved shift according to the context – ranging from developing countries, to expanding cities and interventions within preexisting urban fabrics? How can a master plan remedy ailing conditions, promote growth, and drive an economy? How is the position of the architect defined from within and from without?
