Williams burg!

Within a few weeks, on Wednesday September 12, 2012, a presentation of the Streetscape Territories Research Project will take place at the Flanders House New York. During this event, a select public of professionals and academics will discuss a series of case studies that deal with Depth Configurations in urban streetscapes.

This presentation will focus on the Williamsburg area (Brooklyn, New York City) and will discuss the neighborhoods’ potential and challenges, taking the case studies as a starting point.  Some Master Dissertation projects will be presented and evaluated by a panel of experts, who have helped to set up the in situ framework of this project.
