The MAS Summit for New York City, which occurs at 9:15am on October 14th, will bring together four icons of urban planning, design and architecture to explore today’s challenges and opportunities in creating a well-planned and well-designed city.

Delivering keynote speeches will be Amanda M. Burden, FAICP, an urban planner and civic activist, who serves as the New York City Planning Commissioner and Chair of the New York City Planning Commission, and Witold Rybczynski best-selling author, Martin and Margy Meyerson Professor of Urbanism at the University of Pennsylvania and architecture critic at Slate. More information on the event after the break.

Immediate following the keynotes, David Rockwell and David Renfro will engage in an in-depth conversation on urban design with Marc Kushner, CEO and cofounder of Architizer.com. Renfro, a Partner at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, also serves as Partner-in-Charge of Stanford University’s McMurtry Art & Art History Building, Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive, and the recently completed Creative Arts Center at Brown University. Rockwell leads the Rockwell Group, an award winning, cross-disciplinary architecture and design practice. With a satellite office in Madrid, Rockwell and his 140-person firm focuses on a diverse array of projects that range from hotels to hospitals, restaurants to airport terminals and Broadway set designs to consumer products.

The presentations are part of the MAS Summit for New York City — two days of energetic and fast-paced talks, panel discussions and conversations on how to make New York City more livable.
