Snøhetta's Claire Fellman joins Nick Peterson from the NYC Dept of Transportation and Tim Tompkins from the Times Square Alliance in a panel discussion at the American Society of Landscape Architect's annual conference.
The transformation of Times Square has required synergy between policymakers, nonprofits, and landscape architects. How do cities reclaim roadways as places for people? How has the crossroads of the world reinvented itself for the contemporary city while retaining the qualities that have made it an icon for urban life?
Snøhetta and White Arkitekter’s cultural building in Umeå Sweden, Väven, is nominated for the Kasper Salin Prize. Since 1962, the Swedish Association of Architect annually awards the Kasper Salin Prize to a Swedish building or group of buildings of high architectural quality. The winner will be announced November 28th.
Väven is part of an urban development project: the City between Bridges. The new development is seen as an important catalyst for Umeå’s urban regeneration, and aims to create a cultural area along the river Ume.
In a wide-ranging discussion, Craig Dykers will speak with Pippo Ciorra, Senior Curator at MAXXI Architettura, about the role of context, nature and human nature in these projects, as well as those currently in development.
Dykers is the William A. Bernoudy Designer in Residence at the American Academy in Rome and co-founder of Snøhetta.
