We are experiencing the emergence of a culture that is marked by a return to, redefinition, and expansion of the notion of the commons. The increasing complexity and interconnectedness of globalization is reorienting us away from trends that have emphasized individuation and singular development, and toward new forms of collectivity.

Over the last decade, emerging technologies and economies have affected aspects of our everyday life, from the way we work and travel, to how we

Re: Zoning | 100 Years of Shaping the Future of New York

Re: Zoning | 100 Years of Shaping the Future of New York

On July 25, 1916, New York City enacted the nation’s first comprehensive zoning code. Intended as an innovative tool to guide urban growth, the law continues to play a central role in shaping our city a century later. On the centenial anniversary of the first Zoning Resolution, the Museum of the City of New York and The Municipal Art Society co-present an in-depth examination of the law – with an eye towards the future. We will ask: how can zoning better serve contemporary objectives and address the major challenges – physical, economic, and social – facing our city today?
