Cover of book: Why Public Space Matters

AIA NY: Join us for a discussion to mark the occasion of Setha Low’s new publication, Why Public Space Matters (Oxford University Press, 2022), in conversation with Ya-Ting Liu, Matthew Clarke, and Quilian Riano.

This program presents powerful, recent findings about the importance of public space in the creation of a more just city. The discussion will focus on the contributions of public space to democratic practices, health and well-being, sustainability, work in the informal economy, and social justice. The panelists will explore—from the perspectives of a researcher, city leader, non-profit organization, and educator—what these lessons mean for a dramatically changing New York City. With participation from the audience, the conversation will explore why public space matters to New York City.
