Hosted at the MAS office in the landmark LOOK building, the Closer LOOK series features talks with policy, preservation, and planning experts exploring the current—and future—concerns facing New York City’s built environment. We are pleased to announce details for the second program in our series.
In January 2019, a demolition permit was filed for the 52-story, 1.5-million-square-foot Union Carbide Building. According to PlaNYC, the city generates roughly seven million tons of construction and demolition debris a year, nearly twice the municipal solid waste output of London. New York City is also home to 23 (soon to be 24) of the world’s tallest intentionally demolished buildings. Join MAS as we take a closer look at demolition effects as well as alternative pathways for preservation and sustainability. MAS President Elizabeth Goldstein will moderate a conversation with Allison Arlotta, Research Specialist for Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Ana Baptista, Chair of the Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management Program as well as Assistant Professor of Professional Practice at The New School, and Kate Kitchener, Chief of Staff for the Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability at the NYC Department of Sanitation.
