Mayor Bowser of DC commissioned it (I don’t know which activists or artists proposed it). I encourage people to look up the Movement for Black Lives’ response to that street mural. The DC mayor has historically not acted in the interests of the Black community and she was criticized for this work feeling performative. The activists then corrected the mural by adding “= Defund the Police”

is there any look into “cooling” strategies that can benefit from the movement of water, on the surface or underground?
Rick Fernandez

Does the AC program include support paying the additional power costs since seniors are on a fixed income?
Carter Craft

i.e., what is the cooling capacity of drinking water as it is moving under our feet?

Has the impact of increased GHG emissions from more ACs and generators been assessed with the Mayor's office of Sustainability? In addition, is there any significant increased in microclimate temperature from AC heat rejection?

Carter Craft

Is now a good time to add new content to the MUTCD? more signage/ striping/ color scheme for shared space.
Deborah Morris
53:34
@aurelia - Athens has drinking fountains that are also hand washing stations…more like old fashioned hand/pump style
Carter Craft

the traffic dependence of cities like NYC was already a big problem, and the balance of public space left for PEOPLE was already too scant.

Carter Craft

now the post-COVID NYC seems to shaping up as at least as Car-Dependent as the previous version. Leaving us all this stormwater (which also has thermal benefits, until it hits the asphalt)...

Can we get design students involved? Many at CCNY/Spitzer could be available for internships — could work in the neighborhoods where they live, all across metro NYC.

Hi Johanna, would students from institutions besides Columbia be compensated for work?
Carter Craft

June Williamson if NYC doesn’t move boldly in some of this urban landscape redesign in next 1-2 years i am 100% confident other cities - large and small - will be! there hopefully will be many studios!
Leonel Ponce
01:02:44
And would it be useful to get urbanist schools in a call to discuss how our work intersects?

01:21:55
ha, I was just in the process of posting that CHPC report-it is great. “Since New York City emerged as a hotspot for COVID-19, government leaders and other prominent figures have implicated density as a reason for the growth of the pandemic in the city. Yet “density” is a catchall term that encapsulates many aspects of urban life.In a new report, CHPC finds that residential population density is not a key determinant of the impacts of COVID-19.”
Nancy Bruning
01:21:59
It’s crowding, to density that is the big problem. A housing and office layout issue.
June Williamson
01:22:02
Thanks David Smiley — I’m very concerned about density getting an (undeserved) bad name.

Gonzalo Lopez Garrido
01:23:14
Hi Everyone!Thank you for this event, and to the presenters for the great work! Really excited to see. It makes me think of this example (which I am sure many of you know), in Barcelona, where I got my Architecture Master:(one of many reference articles)https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2019/sep/10/barcelonas-car-free-superblocks-could-save-hundreds-of-lives#:~:text=The%20superblocks%20are%20groups%20of,agency%20led%20by%20Salvador%20Rueda.
I am currently Adjunct Associate at CCNY, and I am developing a design studio, called ‘The SuperBlock Studio’ that speculates with bringing the logic of Barcelona’s superblocks to NYC (this summer we are working on Central Harlem). I would love to have chances to discuss it further and see ways of involving the students and myself with your efforts!
Thanks again!

Biking and walking are safer than transit or shared car. probably.
Carter Craft

I am hopeful that restaurants can bring life to streets etc, but as Ilia paints a longer term and larger picture we run the risk of making some of these places Un-Democratic and un-welcoming. #TooMuchOfAGoodThing

Thank you to all speakers and interest from the audience, we need all hands on deck to make this work.
Emily Gorbaty
01:46:05
I agree with the comments on volunteerism that it favors people and communities with resources—which means you are potentially excluding the people who would be most impactful (not to mention they wouldn’t get those same opportunities). Especially when you’re aiming to serve marginalized communities, it is important to pay people doing this important work. I have a background in international development and too often you see people from privileged backgrounds doing the work without deep community relationships or the insight that comes with lived experience (not to mention that they often don’t have the trust of the community—and not without reason, of course!). If there are resources, I would really hope you can consider paying the people who participate in the Resilience Design Corps.
