On August 3, join OHNY and Vishaan Chakrabarti for a conversation about opportunity. Vishaan Chakrabarti is the Founder of Practice for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU). Simultaneously, Vishaan is an Associate Professor of Practice at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation (GSAPP), where he teaches architectural design studios and seminars on urbanism. His highly acclaimed book, A Country of Cities: A Manifesto for an Urban America (Metropolis Books, 2013), argues that a more urban United States would result in a more prosperous, sustainable, joyous, and socially mobile nation. He has been a guest on the Charlie Rose show, MSNBC’s The Cycle, NY1, NPR, WNYC, and has been profiled in the New York Times and the Financial Times.
When we think of Open House New York, we rightfully think about buildings and the thrill of getting access to the otherwise inaccessible. But this summer, in celebration of the 15th anniversary of Open House New York Weekend, we invite you to join us as we explore some of the deeper values and ideas that make the experience of architecture and cities so powerful, values and ideas that Open House New York itself champions in its programs.
Open House New York has invited a group of leading thinkers from design, art, science, and media for open-ended conversations about life in the contemporary city. In different but compelling ways, the work of each of these individuals helps us better understand the pleasures and frustrations of living an urban life, and asks questions that challenge the way we see and think about the city. Each conversation is structured around a broad theme but all will explore how fundamental values like openness and access help shape our experience of New York and give cities everywhere their vitality and meaning.
