Category : BRIEFLY NOTED 03/21/2017

The relationship between immigration and cities is becoming a popular topic for design-minded civic organizations to focus on. So too the Urban Design Forum’s recent call for “Forefront Fellows. Forefront is an annual program led by the Urban Design Forum dedicated to cultivating emerging leaders in urban design, development and policy. Each year, the Forum invites 20 individuals under the age of 40 to become Forefront Fellows. Fellows meet monthly to investigate critical issues facing New York City, develop design projects and policy papers, and receive feedback from their peers and established leaders in the field. This year’s theme “Design for Arrival” explores how urban design, development and technology can strengthen historic and emerging immigrant communities in New York City.
