About Event

Future Cities: How Technology Shapes Urban Environments 

Join us for the eighth event of the New York Digital Design Community, featuring a great group of speakers! These events are a great way to meet other design and technology leaders in our community, be exposed to some of the work and approaches by other offices, and have a good time with many former colleagues, and new friends. 

In this installment, practitioners from BIG, KPF, and Sidewalk Labs will showcase how the anticipation of change brought on by technology is shaping the way designers create and develop new urban systems. This event will explore the ways these innovations will change how we experience the city, leading into a discussion on the larger implications these transformations will have on societies and future urban living.
