Design Challenge:
Over the past month and a half, the Institute for Urban Design (IfUD) collected more than 500 ideas from New Yorkers about how to improve their city’s public realm through the crowdsourcing project By the City / For the City. Now, the IfUD is launching the second phase of the project, an open call to architects, designers, planners, artists, students, and urbanists from around the world to develop a design proposal that addresses an opportunity identified by the city’s residents.
