Conversations on the City

Cities Group, BuroHappold

Join Open House New York and Kate Asher for a live virtual conversation on systems. Kate Asher is a leader in infrastructure, transportation, economic development and real estate in New York and London. She currently is leading several large planning projects on behalf of BuroHappold’s Cities Group, which specializes in sustainable urban development. She typically works at the intersection of public and private sectors, planning and implementing urban infrastructure and development projects involving major financial, regulatory, organizational and political hurdles. She currently serves as the Milstein Professor of Urban Development at Columbia University, where she teaches real estate, architecture, infrastructure, and urban planning courses. She is also the author of several books on urban infrastructure and the delivery of municipal services, as well as co-author of New York Rising(Monacelli Press, 2018), an illustrated anthology of New York City’s real estate and development history.

Conversations on the City is an ongoing series of discussions organized by Open House New York about the enduring value of cities at a moment of uncertainty about the future of urban life.
With leading experts and thinkers from a wide array of disciplines, Open House New York will explore why cities continue to thrive, what propels them forward, and why our need for the human connection that cities make possible will always prevail over whatever challenges that may arise. Each conversation is organized around a broad theme, but all will explore the abiding joy of living an urban life. List of guests is in formation, so follow us for updates as more speakers are added to the series.
Free and open to the public.
