Philomela Textiles: Giving Tuesday

In salute to the refreshingly “pink” wave that characterizes the incoming freshman congressional class, we offer our own Queen Honeybee pattern on an array of products.

In 2018, “a woman’s places IS in the home”
as in the governor’s mansion.  So let’s hear it for the folks that went beyond cynicism and did the hard work
of turning discontent into reformation!

In honor of Giving Tuesday and in support of the effort
to make sure every last vote gets counted, 10% of net proceeds on all Queen Honeybee products
will go to Protect Democracy.

Join us for the engaging lunch discussion Rebuilding Confidence: The Design, Safety, and Security of One World Trade Center. Presenter Nicole Dosso, FAIA, of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), will recount the design decisions made by SOM as the firm redefined safety and security measures for high-rise structures in the city following the events of Sept. 11.

Safety measures incorporated into the project will also be highlighted, including the structure’s egress redundancy and protection of life-safety infrastructure.
Attend and you will:
Learn about the safety and security measures that Skidmore, Owings & Merrill helped to redefine in New York high-rise construction with the firm’s projects at the World Trade Center complex.
Identify One World Trade Center’s numerous technical site constraints around which the architects had to navigate.
Compare the egress strategies of One World Trade Center with those of its predecessor, the original twin towers of the World Trade Center.

Creating More Housing without New Construction

Sep 14, 2018

1.5 LU / 1.5 HSW

This program is related to the exhibition The Future of the New York Metropolitan Area: The Fourth Regional Plan.

Meeting our need for housing in New York is tough. We need to build more homes – but we also need to do more with what we have. Better using existing buildings and smaller lots, and finding other creative ways of making room for more people to live is imperative to solving our housing crisis. It’s also no less important for our city that this type of new housing is as livable and well-designed as other more traditional housing.

Join RPA, the Center for Architecture, The Architectural League of New York, local architects, and others to explore how we can create alternative housing such as basement apartment, accessory dwelling units, and small infill, in a way which adds to our built environment and produces the type of quality housing we need.

Speakers TBA.
