START: 2:00 PM May 6, 2011
END: 4:30 PM May 6, 2011
Join experts as they discuss New York as “The Reconfigured City,” one of the four main themes of the Festival of Ideas. The reconfigured city is the adaptable city, one that can continually rethink and remake itself without destroying its fundamental character. In this series of presentations two architects, an artist trained as an architect, and an entrepreneur talk about how we can adapt, hack, amplify, and more productively use what we have; how we can tap into the unused excess capacity of our workspaces and transportation systems; and radically re-envision existing buildings and social practices to keep our cities useful long into the future.
Founder and CEO of GoLoco, an online ride-sharing community, Chase also founded and is the former CEO of Zipcar. Currently she leads Meadow Networks, a consulting firm that advises city, state, and federal government agencies on wireless applications in the transportation sector.
Founding partner of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Liz Diller is a Professor of Architecture at Princeton University. She and her partner Ricardo Scofidio were the first architects to be awarded the MacArthur Fellowship, and their practice is currently leading the design of the High Line and the redesign of Lincoln Center.
Founder of DEGW, an architectural firm devoted to strategic consultancy that helps businesses create social-scientifically informed workspaces, Duffy is also the author of Work and the City, which tracks the symbiotic relationship between modern architecture and office design.
