Making Streetscapes Great Again

We have an update of our planned Streetscape Territories New York Masterclass, February 6th-10th: we have selected our participants, defined the on site coordination group and started working on the preparation of the site visits and meetings with local organisations and institutions. We decided to focus on two sites in the New York region: Flushing Meadows and South Bronx, both areas in full transformation and with a strong impact of urban infrastructures on the daily experience within the area. Soon we will provide you with a more detailed calendar!
