Program is free and open to 5-99 year-olds
Introduction by Laetitia Wolff, founder of expoTENtial and executive director of desigNYC, and Silva Ajemian, principal at TODO DA and co-founder of First Green Street Park will be followed by presentations of innovative, place-making street furniture solutions by desigNYC’s DUB-studios and VAMOS Architects, and Marco A.
