Gowanus Final Review


Last Friday we presented the final outcomes of our Streetscapes Territories Gowanus workshop to the panel of experts, composed by Mr. Stuart Pertz (Pratt Institute), Mr. David Briggs (Loci Architecture, Gowanus by Design) and Mr. Raymond Howell (Gowanus Canal Community Development Corporation), apart from the workshop teacher’s team.

I would like to congratulate all teams with their excellent conclusions and coherent proposals (soon we will make all outcomes available on this blog) and invite all participants to join for the exhibition that will be set up at the Faculty of Architecture, campus Ghent at the end of September 2013 (more soon).

Thanks for the dedication and energy, your contribution will help to guarantee a sustainable future for the Gowanus area and its community: a publication is now being prepared to get the result out.

Have a great summer!intro final pres Pratt.008
