2017 Rising Urbanists: Green Infrastructure for the 22nd Century

Organized by the ASLA-NY Student Chapter at the City College of New York this multi-disciplinary conference offered an opportunity to imagine the potential for green infrastructure to act as a catalyst in driving urban design into the 22nd century. The Rising Urbanists Conference was geared toward students and professionals in architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, urban design, urban planning, real estate, and sustainability throughout the tri-state area. We are hosted this event to foster lasting relationships between emerging professionals in allied fields. It featured two interdisciplinary moderated panels and a very successful design charrette lead by the Gowanus Canal Conservancy.
