New York is known as a city of big ideas, big buildings, and even bigger success stories. Next week, the Municipal Art Society will launch its second annual summit, a gathering of development and sustainability movers and shakers with the best and most innovative ideas to keep New York at the forefront of progress. The 2011 MAS Summit for New York will be a two day presentation of awesome lectures, panels, and presentations by city and national leaders on how to make our beloved city more livable.
Held at the Frederick P. Rose Hall in Lincoln Center on October 13th and 14th, the summit will feature more than 50 big name speakers including the opening address by David Childs, the architect of the new 1 World Trade Center tower. Other heavy hitters include Heather Grady, Vice President of Foundation Initiatives of the Rockefeller Foundation, Andrew Kimball, the President and CEO of the newly developed Brooklyn Navy Yard Development, and Marc Kushner, CEO and co-founder of one of our favorite sites, Architizer.com.
The best of the best professors, urban planners, city officials, architects, and artists will discuss how to green skyscrapers, preserve and sustain monuments, and get the community involved in the future planning of New York.
