  • Zoning New York Scavenger Hunt

    WHEN: Saturday, July 9, 2016 10:00 am - 7:30 pm

    In July 1916, New York became the first American city to adopt a radical zoning resolution to control the height, bulk, and use of its buildings. It was an act so unprecedented that its authors questioned whether it was even legal. In the century since, zoning has become the city’s most potent instrument for shaping its future.

  • Authenticity and Innovation at BSA: Margery Perlmutter

    WHEN: Monday, June 6, 2016 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    This year’s presidential theme is Authenticity and Innovation. Authenticity – the historical, cultural, and social essence of the built environment – is what gives people a sense of continuity and a connection to the past. Innovation speaks to the future and to creativity, not only in terms of the buildings themselves, but of the activities fostered in and around them. Throughout the year, a series of speakers are addressing how authenticity and innovation together create the foundation for great architecture and great cities.
