Indoor Privately Owned Public Spaces: How Public Are They?

Leader: Te-Sheng (Emery) Huang 

Privately owned public spaces (POPS) were included in New York City’s zoning resolution in 1961, allowing private developers to build taller buildings than allowed by the zoning code if they incorporated public spaces next to or inside their properties. Based on William Whyte’s landmark research, additional design requirements were added to the zoning resolution in 1975.  POPS, particularly those located indoors, have been widely criticized for being too private and exclusive because of their design and management features. This workshop, led by an architect who has documented the design, management and use of these spaces, will give participants an opportunity to consider privacy and exclusivity in several indoor privately-owned public spaces. This workshop includes walking. Fee includes MTA card.

Tickets are non-refundable.
